Lexington Division of Fire investigators have determined that a fire Wednesday morning at 1472 Versailles Road was the result of arson, said spokesman Joe Best.
Approximately 12 people will be displaced as a result of the damage done if electrical service can not be restored Wednesday, he said.
"Our Department takes this incident very seriously as the fire was set in an occupied building and could have resulted in a loss of lives," said Best.
