Investigators: Mother and children targeted in house fire

Posted: Updated:
TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

A mother and her two small children may have been the targets of an overnight fire in the Old West End, according to investigators.

The fire broke out around 1 a.m. Friday in the 3200 block of Collingwood Boulevard in central Toledo. 

No one was injured, however, because the mother and her children were not home at the time.

Fire investigators are calling the fire "suspicious" because they believe someone set the front porch on fire to "send a message" to the family. The fire chief estimates $20,000 worth of damage.

An investigation is ongoing.
