BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4) – Police are investigating an arson at a home in Boulder Monday morning.
The fire burned the front porch and back door of a house near 18th and Cascade streets, southwest of the University of Colorado campus.
The people inside got out safely and say they saw two college-age men standing nearby. Police don’t think those men set the fires but would like to talk with them.
“One victim reported awakening to a loud crashing sound and went downstairs where he discovered the rear of the house was on fire,” Laurie Ogden with Boulder police said in a statement. “When he opened up the door, he found broken glass with flames spreading out from the area.”
The man woke up his roommate and they attempted to exit through the front and found fire there as well.
Police determined the fires were intentionally set.
