Alaska investigators conducting arson investigation

    FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) — Alaska fire investigators are looking at the possibility that recent fires at vacant homes were set intentionally.

    KTVF-TV reported the Fairbanks Fire Department responded to a house fire Wednesday that took three hours to extinguish.

    A firefighter suffered minor injuries and was treated at Fairbanks Memorial Hospital.

    The City of Fairbanks said the home appeared to be vacant and that squatter activity inside it had been reported.

    The fire was the latest in a series of Fairbanks blazes that happened under suspicious circumstances and are suspected of being intentional.
