At first the Arabic headlines said:

The house of the Rashid Munawar Dawabsheh in Duma village, south of Nablus was set on fire after midnight last night.

Spokesman Samir Dawabsheh Dawabsheh said a little while ago that the house caught fire as a result of throwing a Molotov cocktail and that it was caused by arson.

He guessed that the culprit is the invisible hands of the occupation authorities and intelligence.

He added that the fire broke out empty room, with no injuries, only one case had been suffocation.
Then came this:

Local Palestinian sources reported on Monday at dawn the burning of the house in the town Duma southeast of Nablus, without causing any loss of life, while there were suspicions about the settlers.

Official settlements monitr in the northern West Bank Ghassan Daghlas said in a press statement that the burning of the house of Rashid Munawar Dawabsheh was caused by arson, which led to the burning of one of the rooms with a family member injured taken to the hospital for smoke inhalation.

Palestinian police began an investigation into the circumstances of the incident.

Dahglas pointed out that this incident was similar to that of the incident of the burning house of the family of the martyr Saad Dawabsheh in the same town at the hands of settlers, four weeks ago, where in both incidents it involved throwing burning materials through the house window, but this time the actors did not write on the walls to show their identity .

Dahglas said it was too early to confirm the identity of the perpetrators, calling for caution from rushing to charge the settlers so the occupation cannot take advantage of the incident to acquit settlers for the earlier crime if it is proven they have no connection with the new incident.

Zakaria al-Sadda, official fieldworker for Rabbis for Human Rights, said in a statement, "According to my experience and my follow ups on settler attacks, we can rule out the possibility that they caused the burning of this house, and that the most likely cause is due to an electrical fault."
Al-Sadda didn't say that he inspected the house and found evidence for an electrical fire, he said that it is unlikely that settlers did it and therefore it must have been an electrical fire - and not arson.

This is the source of news reports claiming an electrical fire.

What would you do if you were a Duma official, faced with a possible family feud arson that might cast doubt on the earlier incident, that you wanted to cover up, and then this new theory gets floated?

Here's the new version:

Chairman of the Duma village Abdul Salam Dawabsheh said that the fire, which broke out in the house of the village at dawn Monday, is likely to be due to an electrical fault, not the settlers as reported in some news.

And Dawabsheh told Raya News "that one room of a house belonging to Munawar Dawabsheh burned and is unlikely that settlers were behind it due to the presence of guards," denying injuries.
There are photos of children in the hospital so this official who so confidently says that it was an electrical fire is already shown to be lying:

Here is a photo that seems to be of this incident, it was not labeled as a file photo:

Arutz-7 reports " Israeli security sources claimed it was more likely an internal dispute in the village."
