A state arson investigator has been called in to check on a suspicious fire in Robinson Tuesday night.
Chief Charlie Carson, of the Harrison County Volunteer fire department, said firefighters were called just after 11 p.m. to a vacant home on Robinson-Renaker Road.
Two fishermen were on the bank of the Licking River and noticed two vehicles pull in near the home, which is owned by Junie Pierce. As soon as the vehicles pulled away, there was a loud explosion from the house and it was immediately fully engulfed, the fire chief was told.
