      Coroner: Victim killed in Springfield Twp. condo fire set the blaze


      The Lucas County Coroner has determined that one of the victims of a Springfield Township condominium fire, earlier this year, actually set the blaze himself.


      A report disclosed that 61-year-old Robert McGhee, of Maumee, was behind the arson at the Hidden Cedars Condos in late March.


      The blaze also killed 58-year-old Olandia Dixon, also of Maumee, and left about 3 dozen people homeless.


      Authorities say that McGhee died of a suicide by carbon monoxide poisoning.


      Dixon's death was ruled a homicide but was also caused by carbon monoxide poisoning.
