A 23-year-old man that was inside was injured, and told police he ran away and was picked up by an ambulance at a nearby gas station. He is now at a hospital in serious condition.
Investigators are not sure why the man was in the house, because it was reported to be vacant. They're also still trying to figure out what caused the fire.
The house is a complete loss.
