BROWNSVILLE - Arson investigators are trying to pinpoint the source of the fire that gutted a house in downtown Brownsville.
The fire happened late Tuesday night on East Van Buren, officials said. Flames were shooting out of the front of the house by the time firefighters arrived, officials said.
The owners of the property said electricity to the home was disconnected at least five days ago.
Investigators said the house was cleared after the flames were doused, making their probe even more complicated.
