Authorities say arson is to blame for a fire this morning in North Lubbock. Fire investigators say around 6:00 Monday morning, someone set the house on fire at 2724 2nd Street. Neighbors say, just before the flames broke out, they heard a loud boom.
Fortunately, no one has been living inside the house since this spring, so no one was hurt, but investigators still want to catch the arsonist who set the blaze.
