Hillcrest Street fires considered ‘suspicious’

GLASGOW — A fire that destroyed one property, gutted another and damaged a third on Hillcrest Street on July 25 is being investigated as a suspicious fire.

“The investigation has been turned over to the Kentucky State Police because it was an incendiary … a major fire,” said Todd Price of the State Fire Marshall's Office.

The fire happened at about 4 p.m., where a storage building was on fire, causing two homes around it to catch on fire. No cause has been determined for the fire, according to Price and Glasgow Fire Department Chief Tony Atwood.

“There was no electricity or anything going to that building so that's why they are calling it suspicious,” Atwood said.
