Tallahassee, FL - Investigators say they suspect burglary and arson as the cause of Thursday morning's house fire on the 8100 block of Blue Quill Trail.
While investigating they say they found items missing from the home. This leads them to believe the house was possibly burglarized.
"We're doing some actual digging out the fire scene to determine the actual origin and cause," said John Young, detective in Fire & Arson investigations. "Just basically still assessing the scene...There's a considerable amount of work to be done."
