Investigators Say Arson Caused Omaha Fire

Omaha Fire investigators say the fire at a north Omaha business early Sunday was incendiary in nature.

Firefighters responded to reports of a fire at "Jesse's Place" near 24th and Grant Streets around 1:30 a.m., and quickly extinguished the fire.

The building was unoccupied, and no injuries were reported.

At one part of the building, firefighters had to cut through steel bars over a window to get at the fire.

Anyone with information should contact the arson hotline at 402-444-FIRE or "Omaha Crime Stoppers" at 402-444-STOP.      

A reward may be available for anyone with information that leads to an arrest.
