Fire That Left a Lubbock Family Homeless Ruled Arson

A fire that left a Lubbock family homeless has been ruled arson by authorities.

"In this case, we did not have any of the accidental causes, those were all eliminated in this fire and we had acts that put together had to deliberately cause a fire. Without getting into too many specific details, that's what we had," said Assistant Fire Marshal Marlin Hamilton.

Early Saturday morning Lubbock firefighters responded to a fully involved house fire in the 8200 block of Lynn Haven Avenue. Rita Chasco and her seven children were not home at the time of the fire but lost everything.

Chasco told NewsChannel 11 she didn't have insurance, a fund has been set up to help get the family back on their feet. You may donate at the First Bank of Lubbock. Just ask for the Chasco house fire account. 

The investigation into the fire continues and authorities ask anyone who has information to call the Lubbock Fire Marshal's office at 775-2646.
