ALEXANDRIA, N.H. (AP) - Investigators in Alexandria, New Hampshire, say the cause of a fire that substantially damaged a home in which a toddler sustained fatal injuries in November is suspicious.

Fire officials arrived at the scene of the fire at about 8:30 Friday night.

Fire Chief Mark Chevalier tells WMUR-TV (https://bit.ly/1SsfdG3 ) that no one was inside at the time of the fire and that it’s unclear whether anyone was actually living at the Fowler River Road house.

He said the home is where 11-month-old Shawn Sylvester sustained critical injuries in November. The child died days later from those injuries and his death was ruled a homicide, though no arrests have been made.

Alexandria is a town of about 1,600 people near Newfound Lake in Grafton County.
