Firefighters pulled up to the blaze on Vogue Drive off of Capital Circle South East at about a quarter after ten Friday night. They were able to put the fire out shortly thereafter and officials say there were no injuries because no one was inside.

Although an investigation is underway to determine the cause of the fire, the homeowner, Wrenn Green, says he is sure it is arson. "There has been problems in this neighborhood that we have had to call the police out here, the Sheriff's department out here. It's not the nice quiet neighborhood it used to be, but we're not moving. We're staying here because it's too convenient." said Green.

Investigators are still looking into what caused the fire and we'll keep you updated as this story continues.
