RICHWOOD, La (KNOE 8 News) -  Ouachita Parish Fire investigators believe a fire that burned a mobile home in Richwood could have a suspicious cause.

Since no power was connected to the mobile home, investigators said they're now investigating for a possible outside heat source that could have been brought into the home.

They said they will search for fire patterns and take samples to try to determine whether or not this fire was arson.

There were no injuries in this fire. Investigators believe no one was living in the home at the time of the fire.
