      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.
