New London — City police have released no new information on a person of interest in an intentionally set fire that damaged a two-family home at 10 Rosemary St. on Tuesday.

Police said they were looking to speak to 32-year-old Timothy Settles, who was seen at the home prior to the early morning fire. The home was badly damaged and multiple residents displaced. No serious injuries were reported.

Settles is the father of an infant killed by a family dog in Norwich on Monday, an incident Norwich police have called a tragedy. Police have said they are looking for a possible connection between the two incidents.

The fire marshal’s office has officially ruled the New London fire incendiary, or intentionally set. An investigation determined the fire was started inside the front entryway to the home, a hallway with access to both of the units in the home.

The fire marshal’s office declined to provide further details, citing the ongoing criminal investigation.
