Franklin Castle Fire Ruled Intentional


Fire crews were called to the infamous Franklin Castle in Ohio City last night after smoke was seen coming from the carriage house.

Investigators say the fire was intentional, but no other details have been released. We're guessing a ghost did it, but that's just a guess.

Charles Milsaps, the longtime caretaker of the "haunted" property and who lives in the carriage house, was not home at the time. A fire in 1999 at the castle caused hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage; this time damage is estimated at $50,000 according to WKYC.
