2 Alarm Fire is Arson

On Wednesday, May 4, Columbus and Whitehall fire crews responded to a four-family apartment building at 3482 Cunard Square, on Columbus’ east side. Two firefighters were briefly trapped when an interior stairway collapsed, but were soon rescued and only suffered minor injuries. Box 15 responded automatically on the second alarm and members were on scene within 30 minutes. One unit was totally destroyed and the adjoining three all suffered smoke and water damage. During the investigation, the presence of flammable liquids was detected by the arson canine. This, coupled with statements made by the occupants, caused the fire to be classified as arson. Box 15 was on location for about 2 hours, dispensed 3 cases of water and 1 pot of coffee.
