LEAVITTSBURG, Ohio — A fire near Youngstown is being called suspicious by the Trumbull County Fire Investigation Unit.

It started early Thursday at a garage in Leavittsburg before spreading to another garage and two houses, WKBN reported.

According to WKBN,  investigators do have a person of interest in the fire thanks in part to what the homeowner said during a live interview.

“It was cause of my cousin and I don’t want to mention no names,” Heather Tenney told a WKBN reporter. “He is mad because he can’t get with me. I am married to my husband.”

Heather’s husband, Dennis, told WKBN he had tractors and generators in the garage that were destroyed in the fire. He said they did not have insurance.

Nobody was hurt in the fire.
