Arson suspected in Tuesday Morning Fire in Northeast Lincoln

June 12, 2018 - 3:40pm

Lincoln Fire and Rescue suspect arson after an early morning blaze today (Tuesday, June 12th). The fire near 47th and Gladstone in Northeast Lincoln, was quickly extinguished with a garden hose before crews arrived, but Lincoln Police say there is reason to believe it was deliberately set.

They are concerned it may be connected to another possible arson fire that occurred yesterday (Monday, June 11th) where fire investigators saw leaves had been piled next to a home near UNL’s East Campus. Investigators are looking into both cases.
