Lancaster detectives question “a person of interest” in house fire

Lancaster police detectives said they were questioning “a person of interest” early today in their investigation of a fire that destroyed a two-story house at 6216 Broadway, at the corner of Schwartz Road, Town of Lancaster.

The fire was reported about 9 p.m. Thursday, and fire fighters from the Town Line Volunteer Fire Department still were at the scene two hours later. There were no reports of any injuries or rescues.

Lancaster police said there was another fire several years ago at the same house, leading them to investigate the possibility of arson.
