BFD: Vacant house fire likely case of arson
BEAUMONT - Investigators believe someone deliberately set a fire that heavily damaged a vacant home in Beaumont.
The fire was reported shortly before 11 p.m. Wednesday at 1645 Brooklyn. Flames had engulfed the home when firefighters arrived.
Paramedics treated one firefighter for a heat-related problem and transported him to a hospital.
Investigators say it appears someone set the fire because the home was vacant and no utilities were connected.
