Lima investigators seek to connect string of fires

LIMA, Ohio - Fire investigators are looking for connections among the seven suspicious fires that have been reported along the 600 blocks of South Main, South Elizabeth, and South West streets.

The fires were reported in houses and garages. The source of the fires has not been determined, said Doug Corwin, arson investigator with the Lima fire department.

The first fire was reported June 30 and the last one in that area last week.

Investigators have ruled out accidental causes in this city, about 75 miles south of Toledo.
