Names released in deadly Clarksville fire

Blaze being investigated as arson


CLARKSVILLE — The Clarksville Police Department has identified the two victims of a house fire on Randolph Avenue last Wednesday, as an arson investigation continues.

Amando “Miguel” Rodriguez Solis and Julio Cesar Ventura Mazon were identified as the two men who died in the early morning house fire. Police still do not have the ages of the men, nor their cause of death, which is being determined by the Clark County Coroner.

Calls made to the coroner Wednesday were not returned as of press time.

Police are also looking for another man, who they believe was living in the home. Carlos Alberto Bonilla Canenguez, 34, is wanted for questioning in the case, but police have not been able to locate him.

“There is a concern that he may have fled,” said CPD Maj. Darrell Rayborn. “He has been gone since the time of the fire.”

CPD began investigating the fire after it was determined that the cause was arson. How or why the fire was started, which was limited to the front of the home, has also yet to be determined.

Clarksville Fire Department officials said the Indiana State Fire Marshall’s Office was called in to investigate the cause of the fire, but it has not filed a report yet with Clarksville officials.

The News and Tribune contacted the fire marshall’s office, but a report was also unavailable to the newspaper as of press time.

Police are asking that anyone with information on Canenguez’s whereabouts call 812-288-7151.
