A fire in Galveston that killed a lady and injured five others may have been caused by an alleged drug debt, according to records

According to court records, a deadly house fire in Galveston last month may have been influenced by a drug debt.

Courtney Allen Thompson allegedly started a fire at a residence located in the 700 block of 29th Street, close to Winnie Street, around 1 a.m. on February 29th.

According to family members present at the scene, a tragic incident occurred resulting in the death of a 55-year-old woman. Additionally, her two teenage daughters and boyfriend sustained injuries. The fire marshal’s office is currently conducting an investigation to determine the cause of the fire.

According to court documents obtained by ABC13, details of the incident have been outlined.

Police suspect that Thompson started the fire due to the unpaid marijuana bill by Hawthorne’s son.

The victim’s son informed detectives that he had been receiving threats for quite some time due to the drug debt, as per the report.

According to authorities, someone deliberately started a fire on two sets of stairs outside the home, with the intention of trapping anyone inside and preventing their escape.

Police have confirmed the presence of video footage capturing two individuals at the scene of the fire.
