“Our downtown station responded very quickly to the fire and prevented it from spreading,” Tate said. “The one bedroom in the rear of the house was damaged pretty badly, but nobody was hurt. It was a good interior attack by our guys.”

The state fire marshals investigated the property Tuesday after being notified that arson was suspected.

“They came out (Tuesday) to investigate, and they’ve been conducting interviews to try to figure out what happened and who caused the fire,” Tate said.

On the scene were Demopolis Fire and Rescue and Demopolis Police Department.
