Murfreesboro Fire & Rescue Department officials say the fire that occurred early Sunday morning at 824 N Church Street appears suspicious.
According to Assistant Fire Marshal Clay Malone, the fire started in the upstairs portion of the home and is believed to be a set fire.
MFRD is seeking the public’s assistance with any information about the fire. “The house has been vacant for quite some time,” said Malone, “but we hope someone saw something that will lead us in the right direction.”
