A Perry County woman loses everything she has after her home burned down Monday morning.

Now, state police are investigating.

The flames shooting out of the home in Viper, quickly caught the attention of drivers on highway 15.

Josh Roark and his friend say the back door was open, making them think someone may still be inside.

“We just started hollering, but the time we did that, the windows started busting out,” Roark said.

Luckily, no one was home when the fire started.

Family members say, their dog that is usually locked inside was found running around, safely outside.

Volunteer firefighters for the Viper Fire Department say it's a good thing no one was home, because the fire was intense.

The home was being rented and family members say there's no insurance to cover the damage.

State police are investigating the cause and say witnesses spotted two suspicious people around the home just as the fire began.

State police have not arrested anyone.

The fire is still under investigation and so far, foul play is still a possibility.
