Fire that displaced 2 families in Reading deemed suspicious

READING, Pa. - A two-alarm fire in Reading is now considered "suspicious," according to city fire investigators.

The fire marshal said he still isn't sure what sparked the blaze in the 900 block of Perry Street, but he said he believes there may have been squatters in the building.

The flames broke out early Wednesday morning. No one was hurt, but two families of five lost their homes.
