The Livermore Police Department has completed its investigation into the fatal house fire on Westminster Way from May.
Investigators determined that resident Felix Domondon, 72, who was found unresponsive inside the aflame house, had intentionally ignited the fire in his home before dying by suicide, according to city police. "The firearm caused his death. We were able to corroborate all of this from the investigation and video," police told the Weekly.
The fire began at the standalone house around 5 a.m. May 21, with Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department crews arriving to find the garage and main residence ablaze. They located the resident and a dog in the house; both were pronounced dead at the scene. The house sustained heavy damage.
