House Fire Ruled Arson

8-14-05 - Sherman firefighters say an arsonist is responsible for a house fire on Alma Street Saturday night. The blaze broke out just before 9 p.m. and firefighters battled the blaze until well into the morning.
The home at 1914 Alma was completely destroyed. No one was living in the home.

But Sherman fire Captain Donnie Glenn says the arsonist returned after 1 a.m. and set a second fire in the backyard. Firefighters returned to the scene and battled the second blaze, but two nearby homes sustained a lot of fire damage. One of those homes was completely destroyed and a family of six left homeless.

No arrests have been made, but fire crews are still investigating.
