Sullivan is the arson investigator for the city.
The Blythe Avenue fire was contained to one room of the residence and caused significant damage. That investigation is continuing.
He said a fire at a Black Fox Road residence during the weekend was also an attempt to cover up a burglary.
A report filed by deputy Steve McCullough of the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office noted John Kelley had left home Friday about 6:15 a.m.
When he returned home a little over an hour later, Kelley saw the house on fire.
Officials found someone had broken into the house and taken several items including firearms, electronics and other items.
Investigation is also continuing of a mid-May fire on Henderson Avenue where a man was found unconscious inside his apartment. Sullivan said the fire appeared to be intentionally set. A neighbor returning home from work discovered the fire and notified her husband and the two dragged the man from the apartment.
Sullivan is also continuing to look into the cause of a Tuesday morning fire which destroyed a Beaty Road residence.
