Fireworks, house fire, lead to Atchison arson probe
06/29/2022

(KAIR)--Fireworks are blamed for an exterior, residential Atchison house fire, and that leads to an arson investigation.

According to a release from Atchison Police Chief Mike Wilson, the damage to the outside of the home, located in the 1200 block of Mound Street, was caused by fireworks being launched at the porch area of the home around midnight Tuesday.

Wilson says his office is approaching the investigation as a case of arson.

According to Wilson’s release, the “fire caused by the fireworks was extinguished by the residents before police and fire arrived on the scene.”

Police, Wilson says, “are following leads as the [Atchison] Police and Fire Departments continue to investigate.”

Anyone with information related to the fire should contact investigators at 913-367-4323.
