DAYTON — UPDATE @ 8:05 p.m.: The fire in the attic of a vacant house in the 200 block of South Findlay Street is being investigated as suspicious, Dayton Battalion Chief Rennes Bowers said.
Crews arrived to find heavy smoke coming from the attic, so much so that you couldn’t see down the street, Bowers said.
The house appears to have been vacant for some time and there was no sign of squatters, he said.
Bowers estimated the damage at $12,000.
