Blaze at Lincoln home was arson, fire investigators say; no injuries reported


LINCOLN, Nebraska — Investigators say an early morning fire at a home in central Lincoln was arson.

No one was in the home when firetrucks arrived around 1:40 a.m. Monday. No injuries have been reported in the blaze.

Lincoln fire investigator Don Gross says the most recent tenants of the home are people of interest in the case. They'd been evicted and were seen moving items out of the house on Sunday.

Fire damage was estimated at $20,000.
