HAMILTON, Ohio (AP) - Documents show that police were called several times in recent years to a southwest Ohio home where a firefighter was killed by a blaze that authorities say was arson.

Hamilton officials said Monday that the Dec. 28 death of 28-year-old Patrick Wolterman is being investigated as a homicide. Wolterman died at a hospital soon after entering the smoke-filled home and falling through a floor into a basement.

The Hamilton-Middletown Journal-News reports (bit.ly/22MGNCg) police were called to the home four times since 2011.

Residents reported in November that some items had been stolen and filed a report in July saying a suspect had threatened one of them.

Residents in August 2012 reported a vehicle had been keyed. Their residential alarm went off in February 2011.

No arrests were ever made.
