The Arkansas State Police are investigating a Hamburg house fire after finding evidence that the fire may have been intentionally set.

Arkansas State Police Spokesman Bill Sadler said authorities within the Hamburg Fire Department and Hamburg Police Department requested special agents of the Arkansas State Police Criminal Investigation Division and investigators of the state fire marshal’s office assist with a house fire in Hamburg.

Sadler said the request was that the state police conduct an investigation of the residential fire located at 605 W. Jackson St.

The fire was initially reported to the Hamburg Fire Department at approximately 1 a.m. June 11.

Sadler said Monday morning that there was evidence found at the fire scene that indicated the fire was the result of arson.

Sadler did not name any suspects involved and he did not say if any arrests have been made in connection with the investigation.

No one was injured as a result of the fire or the required response to it, Sadler said.
