UPDATE: Fire Investigation

Updated: Monday, February 24 2014, 01:22 PM EST
A fire that broke out in a mountain town and engulfed several buildings last night is now being called suspicious.

The investigation in Marion took a turn a few hours ago.

The fire broke out on Tate Street, near downtown around 8pm Sunday night.

Firefighters have said they believe that the blaze started in the back of one house and then, with the windy, dry conditions, the flames quickly spread uphill to engulf a second home and a trailer nearby.

One person was home at the time and was able to escape safely.

Today is the first mention that this fire is suspicious.

Police say they're working this investigation right now and will be releasing more information in the next few hours.
