Skip Jack Drive Fire Investigated as Arson

February 7, 2015

By Kevin O’Rourke

 

Investigators from the Montgomery County Fire Rescue Service and Police Department are looking into the possibility that a fire at 12139 Skip Jack Drive was intentionally set.

   According to Pete Piringer, fire investigators have one person in custody. The person is being detained on violations of a protective order and is being questioned regarding the fire. However, arson charges have not been filed.

   Fire fighters were called to the vacant townhouse shortly after midnight on Friday, Feb. 6. According to Piringer, fire fighters were able to quickly get the fire under control and the three-bedroom unit suffered minimal fire damage.

   First responders noticed that the property, which is for sale and in foreclosure, was broken into and suffered vandalism. The total amount of damages to the 1,200-square-foot townhouse was about $10,000 according to fire officials.

   According to real estate records, the townhouse was resold for $266,000 in July 2014 to the Federal National Mortgage Association by former owner Chris T. Probey.
