Arson Possible Cause of Friendship Court Fire


November 11, 2013

A family of seven lost their home to a fire Saturday morning. Now, fire officials say they believe that fire was intentionally set. The fire started in an upstairs bedroom. Fire crews responded just after nine in the morning to the apartment in friendship court. None of the seven people that lived there were injured. There are no official charges in the fire and a suspect has not been named. But the Charlottesville Fire Marshal's office says there is a person of interest in the case. An estimation on the damages has still not been released. Red Cross spokeswoman Amy Whittaker says the adult and six children that were living there are now receiving help. The Red Cross is asking for volunteers to help them get back on their feet.
