Bainbridge-- It appears a house fire in Bainbridge over the weekend was arson.  The house on Edgewood Drive began burning before 5:30 Sunday morning. A driver spotted it and called 911.

Firefighters went in because they thought people were trapped inside the house. Fortunately, the homeowners were out of town.  But firefighters did find something else.

"During the process we noticed some stuff that was very suspicious. So after we got the fire put out we roped off the scene and called in the state fire marshal's office and our investigation units," said Assistant Fire Chief Doyle Welch.

Investigators say whoever set the fire, first poured gasoline throughout the house and on a car outside that was also burned.
