Firefighters said the home along Ike Starnes Road burned very quickly.
Shortly after sunrise, fire investigators were digging through the rubble at the home and by lunchtime, they had removed seven containers sealed with evidence collected from the home to be tested at the state lab for accelerants.
“(I’m in) complete shock over the whole situation,” said homeowner Jeffrey Gosnell.
This is the second time firefighters believe someone has set fire to Gosnell's home. The first fire, which happened shortly after Christmas, forced him to move out while the home underwent repairs.
Nearly the entire home was on fire when firefighters arrived on Thursday night.
“I've lost everything I own again now, so we would like some answers to who is trying to do this to us,” Gosnell said.
Firefighters are calling both fires suspicious. They are trying to determine if the most recent fire was set at different locations throughout the home.
Neighbors described hearing explosions from the fire.
The flames were so hot they melted the siding on Linda Leary's home nearly 40 feet away.
“I hope they're caught,” Leary said. “I hope they find out who did it.”
