Antioch Fire Leads to Arrest on Suspicion of Arson

Yesterday’s one-alarm fire in Antioch left no-one injured, but a house in ruins as Contra Costa Fire Protection District prevented surrounding homes from catching fire on the 1900 block of Deodar Avenue. The fire was reported around 11:51 AM, I didn’t make it on scene until around 1:30 and captured some shots of the damage.  According to the crew on scene, the fire was under control in less than 20-minutes.

According to the Contra Costa Times, evidence found during the fire attack led to the arrest of one person on suspicion of arson. The suspect has been identified as 23-year-old Dennis Wilkinson, who police say they believe returned to the home after an argument with several others and was seen fleeing the area once the fire erupted.
