Portland Ave. Fire Believed Arson: Blotter
Chicago Heights police believe a vacant property in the 1500 block of Portland Ave. was intentionally set ablaze, according to reports.

Police say the plywood boarding on the front door of the home appeared to be pried open when officers responded to the fire call on Dec. 4 just before noon.

A State Fire Marshal investigated the situation and determined that "ordinary combustibles" were found in the living room. The exact origin of the fire was not detailed in the report.
