FOSTORIA - Fire officials determined yesterday that arson was the cause of at least one of two fires that occurred at the same Stadium Drive address.
Fostoria firefighters were called twice to the vacant home, once Sunday morning and again Monday morning. The first fire was contained to a few rooms and caused little damage.
An explosion at about 4 a.m. Monday alerted neighbors to the second fire. The fires caused a total of $65,000 in damage.
Fire investigators are offering a $5,000 reward for information about the arson.
