Rural Metro Fire Department responded around 7:20 a.m. Friday to assist the Andersonville Fire Department at a house fire on Boyer Rd with added water supply and manpower.

The house was condemned in June by the county but a neighbor told firefighters on scene someone who had been coming to stay at the house and stayed at the house the night before the fire.

The house’s occupants had not been located as of Friday morning. Anderson County Sheriff’s deputies are investigating the fire.

A release from Andersonville Fire Chief Ambrea Peters said the cause of the fire is very suspicious and ACSO Arson Investigator, Detective Flynn, is continuing the investigation.
