Authorities Investigate Vandalism & Arson at Lubbock Fraternity House

Lubbock Fire crews are investigating Vandalism and Arson at a fraternity house under construction on Greek Circle.

The Delta Tau Delta house was vandalized Monday around 6pm in the morning. The suspects apparently lit a fire in the main room, threw rocks through windows and busted door frames. Damage estimates could be as high as $50,000, but the contractor working on the house says things could have been worse.

"They started the fire over here behind me, evidently using cardboard as their start, and once that burned it, it wasn't hot enough, so the fire was put out quickly, so we're fortunate there," said Contractor Mike Becknel.

Construction on the house was set back several weeks. If you have any information on this incident, call the Fire Investigator at 775-2646 .
