The state fire marshal's office is investigating and looking for who set the home on fire.

Chief Windham said Friday that he hopes someone will come forward with information.

"We've had a lot of neighbors come through and tell us what they saw that evening, but we're hoping one of the other neighbors saw something a little more specific, so we can put someone closer to the house at the time of the fire," he explained.

There is a $10,000 reward for anyone who reports information that leads to an arrest and conviction in this case.

If you know anything about this fire, call the arson hotline at 1 (800) 282-5804.
