On Sept 25, a two-alarm fire engulfed an apartment building at Huntington Circle Apartments, displacing residents from eight units.  After investigating to determine the cause of the blaze, Division Chief Mark Richards now calls the fire suspicious and is asking for the public’s help if they can provide any information about the cause.

Richards had a K-9 unit on-site last week, and was trying to work through potential causes. He says he has eliminated some, and that his department is following up on tips that have already come in.  The fire started on the first floor fenced-in patio, though Richards would not reveal any details about why he thinks the fire is suspicious.

The fire department distributed flyers around the apartment complex asking residents to share any information they might have.

While Richards would not say for sure whether the fire was caused by arson, he said that if someone ended up being charged for the fire, it would be a second-degree felony.

If you have information that could help the Lewisville Fire Department determine the cause of this fire, please call 972-219-3595 or email mrichards@cityoflewisville.com.
