A suspicious fire is under investigation in Milton.
It happened on Washington Avenue at around 11 p.m. Thursday.
No one was hurt but firefighters don't think it was accidental. A trailer on an adjacent property was also charred.
Firefighters said this is just the latest suspicious fire to plague this neighborhood. A neighbor says she saw a man running down the alley with what appeared to be a gas tank.
"I looked towards the church and saw, Oh my god theres a fire," said Loretta Armstrong, neighbor. "I ran across the street and yelled at Randy. It was really scare cause we just had a fire not too long ago."
Fire officials said the house was supposed to be torn down on Friday.
The West Virginia State Fire Marshal's Office along with the Cabell County Sheriff's Department are investigating.
