ENID, Okla. — Enid Fire Department officials believe Tuesday’s fire on 1334 E. Randolph could have been intentionally set.

Assistant Fire Marshal Bill Moss said they have not determined the source of the fire and that they may not be able to, although they do know it was an electrical fire that started on the front porch.

“If anyone has any information, please contact us,” Moss said. EFD can be reached at 234-0541.

The department received the fire call at 2:25 p.m., and although the fire was knocked down by about 2:40 p.m., crews were on the scene until 6:20 p.m. checking for hotspots and doing overhaul, Moss said. The house’s occupant was not home, so there were no human casualties but a dog was killed in the blaze.

Anyone with information about the fire can report an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers at (580) 233-6233, www.enid.org/departments/police or text to 274637, typing “Enid” and a message in the text box. Those submitting a tip could earn a reward up to $1,000 and will not be required to testify nor be identified.
