Fire in Hamilton considered arson

HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) -- The Hamilton Fire Department is investigating a Sunday evening fire they believed was intentionally set.

Fire crews were called to the 800 block of Central Avenue after neighbors noticed visible fire and smoke coming from a home just before 6:00pm.

The two story house was vacant at the time of the fire.

Officials say the fire was deliberately set and is considered arson.
