MERIDIAN, Miss. (AP) - Investigators say a fire that destroyed a house on Monday afternoon was the work of an arsonist.

Fire Marshal Jason Collier tells WTOK-TV (https://bit.ly/MpN4RN ) the fire was reported at an unoccupied house on Martin Luther King Drive in Meridian.

Witnesses told firefighters they saw a man leaving the house about the time the fire started, Collier says.

The house did not have electric or gas service, investigators say.
