Suspicious fire destroys Lexington home

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - A home has burned to the ground after what officials are calling a suspicious fire.

Crews were called to the home on Ohio Terrace around 1:00 a.m. Friday. When they arrived, crews found a home fully involved with flames and smoke pouring from the home.

Three people were inside at the time. Fire officials say a woman and her young son made it safely. A man inside the home was taken to the hospital with burns to his face and arm.

After getting the fire under control, investigators were able to determine what they're calling a person of interest in this case. That man was picked up by police, and in the process of being taken downtown for questioning, police say he kicked out the window of a cruiser.

Arson investigators continue to look into what caused that fire.
