Suspicious fire destroys home

July 22, 2003

Thomas County- A home on Cassidy Road in Northern Thomas County burned around two Tuesday morning.

Investigators spent most of the day sifting through charred debris. They have not determined if the fire was set, but police call it suspicious.

"We have a certified arson investigator and the county has a certified arson investigator. They are both out there working together on the scene. They're attempting to determine the cause of the fire, and to see if there's any evidence of arson," says Lt. Mark Scott of the Thomasville Police Department.

Police say the family was not home when the fire erupted and it could take weeks to figure out how the fire started.
