Warren — Officials have concluded that a fire that injured two firefighters at a vacant home early Wednesday morning is suspicious in origin.

“We don’t have a cause yet but we have determined that it’s suspicious at this time,” Warren Fire Chief David Frederick said. “The fire looks like it might have been started in numerous places in the home.”

According to Frederick, two firefighters were injured fighting the 2 a.m. blaze when one fell off a ladder and the other fell off a roof of the home, located in the 7000 block of Meadow, just west of Van Dyke.

“Both were taken to a local hospital where they were treated and released,” Frederick said. “They will be back to work next week.”

On Tuesday, Warren police were called to the home, which is undergoing renovations, on reports of a break-in in which a water heater and furnace were stolen.
