JAMESTOWN-A fire that broke out at an abandoned house on the corner of E. 5th and Lincoln Sts. was the work of an arsonist, according to Jamestown Fire Chief Andrew Finson.

Finson said an incendiary fire is when a blaze is intentionally set, and the person(s) knows the fire should not be ignited.

Earlier, reporters on scene witnessed police going door to door talking to neighbors.

Finson could not comment further but said the investigation remains open.

The structure was demolished late Monday afternoon per Finson.
