DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — A fire that broke out at the same home where a woman was mauled to death by her neighbors’ dogs has been ruled arson.

Crews were called to the home at 35 East Bruce Avenue around 8:30 a.m. Friday.

Dayton Interim Fire Chief Jeff Payne said the fire appeared to have started on the second floor of the home.

No one was inside at the time and no one was hurt.

The home where the fire broke out is where the dogs lived that mauled Klonda Richey to death 2 weeks ago. The couple who lived there were jailed, but later released because no formal charges were filed.

If you have any information about the fire, call Crime Stoppers at 937-222-7867.
