LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Authorities say a deadly fire at an apartment building in the city’s Old Louisville neighborhood has been ruled arson.

WDRB-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1NQHrcm ) officials confirmed Monday that the cause of the fire on July 2 was arson. Authorities say Flo Filatreau and Theresa Shultz, who lived inside the building, were killed in the fire. Another resident, John Bullock, died days later.

Officials say the deaths are now being investigated as homicides. Maj. Henry Ott, who has since retired from the Louisville Fire Department, told WDRB-TV in July that the fire started in the first floor hallway area and spread upward.

Along with the three deaths, four other people were injured in the blaze.

Authorities are asking the public for help in their investigation, which remains ongoing.
