Fire officials believe someone intentionally tried to set a vacant Madison home on fire early Thursday morning.
Firefighters responded to the home just before 1 a.m. in the 300 block of Dupont Avenue.
The home suffered a fair amount of damage before crews could extinguish the flames.
Officials said it appears someone tried to light the door on fire in hopes of it spreading to the rest of the home.
No further details were immediately released.
The fire Marshal plans to investigate.
