The DeKalb County Sheriff's Department is investigating a suspicious fire Monday morning at a vacant double wide mobile home at 1558 Banks Pisgah Road.

County Fire Chief Donny Green says Vanderbilt Mortgage Company, the owner, recently repossessed the mobile home. The previous tenants moved out December 15th.

Green says the fire is suspicious because there were no utilities connected to the home.

He says the fire gutted the structure causing significant damage. There were no personal belongings or contents inside the mobile home.

No one was injured.

Members of the Blue Springs, Keltonburg, and Short Mountain Highway stations responded along with a tanker truck.
