Arson suspected in Oakland Township house fire

OAKLAND TOWNSHIP — Fire officials are investigating the possibility of arson in connection with a recent house fire.

According to a police report, a house fire in the 1700 block of Braemar — east of Orion Road and north of Clarkston Road — was reported at 11:05 p.m. Jan. 15.

When firefighters arrived at the scene, neighbors told officials they saw someone running out of the house and then re-entering. The resident who ran is the homeowner’s grandson, who was discovered a short distance from the house, the report states.

The 32-year-old grandson, who lives in Oakland Township, was the lone house occupant at the time of the fire. Emergency medical officials transported the grandson to a hospital for minor injuries sustained in the fire.

Police determined the fire was arson, according to a report, and a hospital police-watch was initiated. Upon his hospital release, the suspect was lodged at Oakland County Jail in Pontiac. At press time, the suspect was awaiting arraignment.
