Investigators are looking into an overnight house fire in Winchester.
Crews were called out to the home on Oliver Street around two this morning.
When the first responders arrived there were flames shooting through the roof. Firefighters immediately called for more backup to help battle the fire. They say the design of the home made it more difficult for them to put out the flames.
"Yes, it's real difficult. That contributed to being difficult to fight this fire. The roof line is different in areas that have double roofs than some. It made it real difficult," said Battalion. Chief Kenneth Williamson.
Once daylight came fire investigators were able to determine that the fire was set. An arson dog was brought to the scene to help collect evidence.
This is the fourth fire the Winchester Fire Department has worked in less than a week. At least one of those fires is still under investigation.
