Those Officials also say they’ve received an unusual amount of calls over the past two days.
Investigators are now working three separate fire investigations over the past two days.
District Chief Cheryl Clark says the firefighters made the right decision by exiting the home before the roof collapsed.
“The first crew did a really good job. They thought they could go inside,” she added, “quickly realized they couldn’t and then protected the exposure until the rest of the crews got to the scene.”
Nobody was hurt battling the flames.
