The man and his wife both say that investigators told them the fire appears to have started in the kitchen or either the bathroom but it is still under investigation.
Fortunately no one was injured .
I talked with one of the homeowners about the fire.
"all i know is when they called me we were up in alabama.
And i got back about 7: 30 or 8 the house was already in flames.
I guess there were seven or eight fire departments here and they were putting the water to it but once it got started in the older part it went in a hurry."
