BRACEVILLE Twp., Ohio (WKBN) – Investigators believe a fire at a Braceville Township home was intentionally set.

Braceville Township’s fire chief said the home in the 3400 block of Nelson-Mosier Road was vacant. The owner passed away about a month ago.

Even though the gas was shut off, flames broke out just before 4 a.m. Thursday.

Anyone with information on the fire should call the State Fire Marshal’s Office.

The house is a total loss.
