Paris site of alleged arson has another fire

A fire at a property in Paris that is already the subject of one arson case had another fire Friday.

Paris Fire and Rescue units and sheriff’s deputies responded to the fire in the 19400 block of 38th Street (Highway N) in Paris at about 5:17 a.m. Friday, said Paris fire Chief Roland Iwen. Arriving fire units found a home on the property fully engulfed in flames.

A box alarm was called, bringing response from numerous departments including, Bristol Fire and Rescue, Pleasant Prairie Fire and Rescue, Kenosha Fire Department, Kansasville Fire Department, Somers Fire and Rescue, Newport Fire Department, Caledonia Fire Department, South Shore Fire Department and Union Grove Fire Department.

The house, which was only damaged during a Feb. 18 fire that destroyed a barn on the property, was itself destroyed this time, Iwen said.

The house was not occupied and the property owners live out of state, Iwen said.

The fire is under investigation by the Kenosha County Fire Task Force, a joint agency that investigates fires, Iwen said.

Two men were charged with arson in relation to the Feb. 18 fire that destroyed the barn. They are awaiting trial in Kenosha County Circuit Court.
