Austintown Fire Department says fire "intentionally" set at bar
Story from the WFMJ TV21 Web Site on 3/2/2011.

AUSTINTOWN, Ohio - Flames that broke out at Rumors Lounge in Austintown were "intentionally" set according to the Austintown Fire Department.

Chief Andy Frost tells 21 News that the blaze was mostly confined to an apartment above the lounge. However, the bar on North Meridian Road was damaged by smoke.

"It definitely was a deliberately set fire, there's no doubt about that. Someone kicked the door in and put flameable l iquid in that upstairs apartment," Frost said.

The State Fire Marshall and the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms are assisting with the investigation.

The word "intentionally" requires quotes, apparently.
