INDIANAPOLIS (AP) ó Indianapolis officials say a woman was killed in a house
fire that was among a string of 10 overnight fires, most of which are
believed to be arson.
The city Fire Department says five of the blazes were reported before 1 a.m.
Tuesday, with five more by about 6 a.m. Most of the fires were clustered to
houses just east and south of downtown Indianapolis.
The only injuries reported were from the fire where 63-year-old Anna
Richards was killed and her adult son was hurt. Police Detective Marcus
Kennedy says the fire is suspicious but that investigators didnít know
whether it is connected to the other fires.
Fire officials said at least six of the blazes were arsons and the others
remained under investigation.
