LUBBOCK, Texas– A fire in West Lubbock that left a woman with serious injuries was intentionally set, according to an incident report from the Lubbock Police Department obtained by EverythingLubbock.com on Wednesday.
The fire happened in the 6800 block of 84th Street on Friday at 11:40 a.m.
The report stated the suspect started the fire to “destroy or damage the habitation” and was “reckless” because the fire could endanger someone’s life. The report said fire crews were called to the area for a “working structure fire.”
