Gibson County Fire Called Suspicious


An overnight house fire in Gibson County is being called suspicious.

The fire started around 2 a.m. Monday in the town of Owensville.

Fire Chief Roger Leister tells us this was a relatively new home.

He says nobody was inside at the time.

In fact, he says the owner has been in the Gibson County jail for the past couple of weeks.

Neighbors say just before the home was engulfed in flames, they saw a car peeling away from the area.

Chief Leister says the state fire marshal will be called in to investigate.
