(Cleveland) - The father of Seahawks defensive end Frank Clark was apparently among those killed in a fire on Cleveland's Collinwood neighborhood last week.

Clark later tweeted a link to information about fire that occurred last Tuesday, and referred to it as an arson.
Cleveland fire department spokesman Mike Norman says the blaze that took 4 lives has not been ruled and arson and remains under investigation.
Norman tells Newsradio WTAM 1100, that the arson unit is always called to investigate a fire of such magnitude, but the cause of the blaze remains undetermined at this time.
Clark lists his home town as Cleveland having played at Glenville High School before attending Michigan and then being drafted by the Seahawks in the second round in 2015.
Clark just completed his third season with the Seahawks. Back in August, Clark was disciplined for punching teammate Germain Ifedi in the face during training camp.
