(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) A fire that ripped through a St. Joseph home does not appear to be an accident.

Firefighters were called out to the house at 918 Prospect Avenue just after midnight.

Fire inspectors ruled the cause as incendiary, meaning someone set the fire on purpose.

No one lived in the house.
