The older home was situated on farm property in the 1300 block of Trewhitt Road. An investigation is under way however Windsor says it is not supicious at this time.

The home that no one was living in may have caught on fire because of a wood burning stove that the home owners used to heat the house. They lit it earlier Saturday morning while maintaining the property.
