Police say burglars may have intentionally set fire to a North Seattle home after breaking into it Sunday evening.
Neighbors of the home in the 11000 block of 20th Avenue Northeast noticed smoke coming from the home and called 911 just after 9 p.m. The fire department determined the fire probably started in a back bedroom closet.
The front door was open with its window broken out. When police officers got there, they determined that someone had first tried to open the basement door to the house. It is unknown whether anything was taken, and the arson bomb squad and CSI are investigating.
