Nobody was home during a remodel.
Fire investigators say a blaze in a South Seattle home Tuesday afternoon was intentionally set.
A passer-by reported smoke coming from the two-story house at the corner of Prentice Street and 67th Avenue South at around 3:45 p.m. At about the same time, the owner called police to report a burglary.
When Seattle firefighters arrived, they found the door open, and smoke and flames coming from the main floor. No one was inside. The owners arrived later and said they were not living in the house while it was being remodeled.
The fire took about 20 minutes to extinguish, and did $100,000 in damage.
