LAWTON, OK (KSWO) -Fire officials now believe the house fire on Southwest ‘A’ Avenue was intentionally set.

Firefighters were called to a fire at a home in on Southwest 17th Street and ‘A’ Avenue Monday. The fire marshal says the fire started at the back of a house near the rear exit. Fortunately, firefighters were able to put out the blaze and keep the home from being a total loss.
