Charlottetown fire officials have classified a house fire on Warburton Drive last Monday as suspicious.

The fire was called in at 6:05 a.m. by a neighbour who saw the flames. No one was home.

The fire destroyed the garage. The heat was so intense it caused some of the siding to melt on the house next door.

Charlottetown fire inspector Winston Bryan said the file has been turned over to Charlottetown Police.

"Within our investigation on site we came up with two areas of origin," said Bryan.

"Exhibits have been taken and sent off to the crime lab."

Bryan said he can't reveal the details of what was found. He said it will likely be several months before the results come back from the crime lab.
