Estill County arson crews investigating house fire

ESTILL COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - The Estill County fire department is investigating a house fire they said is suspicious.

At first, crews thought the house had been struck by lightning. After investigating, however, they discovered that the back door of the home had been kicked in.

The fire chief told WKYT right after the last storm rolled through Sunday night, they got a call at 11:30 p.m. saying there was smoke coming from a home on Dark Hollow Road.

Firefighters are now considering the possibility that someone may have burglarized the home or set it on fire.
