Clarksville Fire Ruled Arson, Attempted Murder; Reward Offered

Police said a fire was intentionally set at a home in Clarksville when three adults and two young children were inside the home.

Police have ruled a September fire on the western edge of Clarksville as an arson and have classified it as attempted murder.

Police are offering a $2,500 reward for information leading to an arrest in the case.

The fire started just after midnight on Sept. 8 in the 5000 block of Ten Oaks Road. At the time five people, three adults and two children, ages 3 and 1, were in the home, according to police. The residents managed to escape through a side door, without injury.

Police determined an accelerant was poured onto the home's front porch and ignited. Detectives believe the people inside the home were targeted. There was no motive identified by police and police said they would not identify the victims.

Police asked that anyone with information about the incident call 410-313-STOP.
