Woodlawn Avenue Fire Suspicious

By Staff Report | News

SARATOGA SPRINGS — On Tuesday, October 29, Saratoga Springs Assistant Chief John Catone announced that there is a person or persons of interest in the ongoing investigation of the fire which occurred on July 28 at 106-108 Woodlawn Avenue.

No arrests have been made at this point, although officials have said that they believe that the fire was arson. Within a day after the fire, police had executed a search warrant for a home in the town of Wilton. 

On Tuesday, police said that the ongoing investigation revealed that the fire had multiple points of origin and flammable liquids had been found at the scene. 

Though no arrests have been made, Catone characterized that as a matter of evidence falling into place. 

“If we wanted to go out make an arrest we could do that, our ultimate goal is to put the person or people responsible in prison,” he said.
