Arson again suspected in Arrowhead Lake fire


Springfield Township Firefighters battled another suspected arson fire at Arrowhead Lake in Swanton Township on Thursday.

Homes on two lots, 118 and 119, were destroyed by the fire. Arrowhead Lake is located at 2170 S. Berkey Southern Road near the Ohio Turnpike.

The smoke from the fire combined with construction to cause major delays on the Turnpike. Eastbound traffic was the most heavily impacted and was backed-up over eight miles at one point.

Anyone with information on the fire is asked to call the State of Ohio Fire Marshal Tip Line at 1-800-589-2728. Also anyone with information on a suspicious fire on Wednesday, is urged to call the tip line as well.

A pair of fires at Arrowhead Lake on Feb. 17 are also being investigated as arson.
