Crews from multiple towns responded to a two-alarm house fire at 24 Old Post Rd. in Worthington Monday afternoon.
Calls came in from neighbors saying the home had heavy black smoke and fire coming from it.
Crews from Worthington, Hinsdale, Windsor Peru and Goshen responded to the fire, where they saw heavy flames coming from the rear of the house.
The fire was knocked down in only about 15 minutes, but once officials were able to get inside and investigate, they say they now have reason to believe this was a possible arson.
At this time they are not at liberty to say what was found to make them suspect arson. But they are continuing to investigate.
The home has been on the market for a while and no one was living there at the time.
