Lawton fire marshals investigate two cases of possible arson

LAWTON, Okla._Lawton fire marshals are investigating two cases of possible case of arson over the weekend.

The first happened on 14th Street after neighbors noticed a home on fire early Saturday morning. Fire crews arrived at the home just after midnight on Saturday. The home was unoccupied at the time. 

Fire marshals were able to determine the fire started in the bedroom, but believe it was intentionally set. Police say the homeowner has not been home in over a week.

Fire marshals are also investigating another fire -- this one at an apartment complex on 44th Street.  

Several tenants told police their apartments began filling with smoke late Saturday night. Firefighters later found the source of the blaze in one of the units. 

When investigators arrived, they later determined that the blaze looked intentional. Police are working on finding who's responsible.
