With the most recent arrest, there are now four people facing charges in connection to this event.
This investigation began on Tuesday, February 24, 2015, when police were dispatched to a house in the 100 block of Cooper Crescent to assist other emergency responders already on scene. Callers described an explosion and fire at the house and people injured. When police arrived, the house was engulfed in flames and there was a great deal of smoke.
