WILMINGTON, NC - (WECT) - New details on a fire that happened almost one year ago. The Wilmington Police Department now believes a fire that broke out in the 100 block of Wayne Drive was set.
At this point, they say it looks as if the fire was set on purpose but they are still looking at every possible explanation.
Police are asking for anyone with information to give them a call at 910-343-3600. They are hoping that a tip, will lead them to an explanation on the fire's cause.
"Whenever we get to a point in the case where its looking like it's going to stall out, we've tracked down every possible lead we can and none of them have developed into anything we can use we tend to try to expand the investigation and reach out and ask for the publics help," explained Detective Kevin Smith.
The fire took place on May 25, 2012 at 103 Wayne Drive. The owner was asleep at the time and was able to get out without getting hurt.
