Beach Fire Termed Suspicious

Bay County sheriff’s investigators and investigators from the state fire marshal’s office are looking into a Monday 1:00 a.m. fire which destroyed a home at 6901 Sunset Ave.

The home was located between South Lagoon Drive and Thomas Drive on the east end of the beach.

Deputies would release very little details about the fire at this time. They did tell NewsChannel Seven one man may be arrested and charged with arson and attempted murder.

Two people were inside the house at the time the fire broke out. One man is hospitalized with burns. No identities have been released at this time.
