Flames for police dispatcher's home -- Quincy, MA

Arson is suspected in a fire Saturday at a two-family house that was heavily damaged by another blaze in September.

Police dispatcher Michael Bowes and his parents lived in the house at 97-99 Hollis Ave. prior to the Sept. 5 fire. The cause of that fire remains undetermined, police Capt. John Dougan said. The damage, which included a collapsed roof, had not been repaired when the second fire happened this weekend, and no one was living there.

Firefighters found the front porches engulfed in flames at 1:36 a.m. Saturday. Dougan said the fire was believed to have been started intentionally, and that police have at least one suspect.
