LUBBOCK, TX -- The Lubbock Fire Marshal’s office released new information Tuesday concerning a house fire last week. Stephen Salazar, 34, was found dead inside the home at 8617 Jordan Drive.

“This fire was intentionally set,” a written statement said. “The investigation is ongoing and does not exclude an intentional act performed by the decedent.”

No final determination has been made yet, according to the statement. Neighbors described a fire that was intense and engulfed the house quickly. Firefighters needed two hours to get the fire put out.
