MONTVILLE, Conn. (WTNH) -- An Oakdale home is boarded up again. The Wednesday fire is the third to torch the Old Colchester Road Extension house this year.
It was set on fire March 17 and 18 just after it was put up for sale by a family member who inherited it.
News 8 has learned other family members were not so happy about that inheritance however no charges were ever filed.
"First it goes on sale and it catches fire and then it was about to be sold and it catches on fire," Fire Marshal Ray Occhialini said.
News 8's Tina Detelj asked Occhialini if he thinks there is a connection.
"Yeah I think it's all connected," Occhialini said.
"And in what way would you say," News 8's Detelj asked.
"No comment," Occhialini said.
The fire marshal says this fire was set at the back of the house.
This home was reportedly set to be sold on Friday. Because this is the third fire in just this one year, it is sparking a whole new investigation.
"She would have been living there with her sister and three kids she told me, so it would have been terrible after the fact," Occhialini said.
Two days before this fire Creative Care Day Care was destroyed by another suspicious fire in the same section of Montville. That fire was reportedly set outside the front of the Old Colchester Road building not long after the last child went home.
News 8 has learned that property was in foreclosure and the owners owed back taxes to the town.
"It would have been sold for taxes again and I think business was bad," Occhialini said.
"I mean does that in itself lead you to believe that there might be some criminal aspect to this," News 8's Detelj asked.
"Yes," Occhialini said.
Two unrelated fire, but both suspicious and both being investigated by state police.
The fire marshal says there is no serial arsonist running around town.
