Homeowner Suspected In Longview Arson

The Longview fire marshal is pointing to arson as the cause of a fire that destroyed a Longview home. The prime suspect is the homeowner. Crews were called yesterday to the 800 block of 3rd street to find the house engulfed in flames. The fire marshal says several items had been taken out of the home before the fire, and the electricity had been cut off.

The homeowner was taken in for questioning, but as of this hour, he has not been arrested.
