DENHAM SPRINGS- Fire investigators believe an arsonist lit a vacant house on fire Thursday evening.

Smoke and flames poured from the home on Hope Circle, off Lockhart Road. Viewer-video shows massive flames engulfing the structure.

Now, there is a search for the person who started the inferno.

About an hour before the fire, a neighbor filed a police report about a suspicious person snooping around the house.

An abandoned car parked under the carport was destroyed and investigators are looking at possible suspicious activity near the vehicle.

"They made a report earlier today that someone had actually broken into the car, and there were some burnt papers on the floor," said a firefighter. He added the windows were busted out of the car.
