Investigators: Fire at vacant Sulphur Springs home was arson

TAMPA — A vacant house fire in Sulphur Springs early Monday has been deemed arson.

The blaze broke out about 8 a.m. at 9615 N 10th St., Tampa Fire Rescue officials said. It was out in about 10 minutes.

An investigator from the Tampa Fire Marshal's Office determined that someone intentionally set the fire in a bedroom.

Damage was moderate, estimated at about $4,000.

Investigators say there is no known connection between this arson and any other arsons in the city.

In about a year, there have been 20 unsolved arsons in the V.M. Ybor neighborhood, about 4 miles away from the site of Monday morning's fire.
