Arson Investigation Continuing in Middletown

A detective and fire marshal processed one of the vehicles for evidence yesterday.


The investigation into who lit a car on fire in Middletown Township early Sunday morning continues, police said Wednesday.

On Tuesday, a detective and members of the fire marshal's office processed one of the two vehicles destroyed in the fast moving blaze, which also damaged the home at 68 Teal Drive, Lt. John Michniewicz said.

Michniewicz said the detective on the case has a suspect in mind, but no arrests had been made as of Wednesday morning.

Michniewicz did not comment on a motive for the fire.

The homeowner told Patch on Monday she found the fire "upsetting" and police had asked her not to discuss the investigation further.

Langhorne, Middletown and Yardley firefighters were called to extinguish the fire.

Michniewicz said that arson investigations are rare in the township.
