Reward offered in Woodlawn fire

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        WOODLAWN — A reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for a weekend fire at a residence on McLean Street.

        Woodlawn Fire Capt. Douglas Wehmeyer, of the fire investigation bureau, said the reward is up to $5,000.

        The fire was started at the front door of the residence at 6:30 a.m. Saturday, said Capt. Wehmeyer. The fire was contained to the front-door area. No one was injured in the fire, which caused about $2,000 in damages.

        “Arson is suspected in the fire,” said Capt. Wehmeyer, although he declined to say how the fire was started. “It was a relatively small fire. It was maintained at the front door of the residence. It did not displace the people. They're still living in the same house.”

        Capt. Wehmeyer said they do not know a possible motive for setting the fire.

        Anyone with information can call either the Woodlawn Fire Department at 771-0233, or Woodlawn Police Department at 771-8480.
