(WMC-TV) – Fire investigators are on the scene of a house fire in the 2500 block of Snowden.

The fire sparked around 2 a.m. Wednesday.

The homeowner told firefighters he caught some kids breaking into his house earlier this week and had them arrested.

He was afraid of retaliation, and was not sleeping at home.

Investigators also say there is no electricity in the house.
