Official: Summit fire result of arson

The fire that destroyed a Summit Drive home early Sunday morning was a result of arson, Kayla Anderson, spokesman with the state’s Fire Marshal’s Office, said Thursday morning. She said the department is investigating a “person of interest.”

Firefighters responded to the fully involved fire at 7057 Summit Drive at about 3:45 Sunday morning.
