According to authorities, a house fire
south of downtown Lincoln is now considered suspicious.
City Fire Investigator Ken Hilger said
a man living in the house went to a nearby gas station to report the blaze
shortly before 7 a.m. Sunday.
The man wasn't injured.
An arson investigation dog alerted at
two areas inside the house. The flames were contained to the first floor but
there was smoke damage upstairs.
Total damage was estimated at nearly $100,000.
