Arson investigation continues in Bedford Hills

The fire that took place at a vacant house in Bedford Hills on Tuesday is turning into a mystery. Investigators are trying to figure out how the blaze began and are also wondering why there was a stolen truck at the scene.

Police say there may be an arsonist on the loose who set fire to the abandoned house located on McLain Street, but don't know why. Police say the electricity and gas were off and no one has lived there for more than a year.

The stolen truck is also perplexing investigators. They say it was stolen from the parking lot at Michael's nursery in Mt. Kisco Tuesday morning. But they don't believe the truck started the fire.

One firefighter was injured in the blaze, but not seriously.
