COOS BAY, Ore. -- A house was destroyed in Coos Bay after catching fire Sunday morning.

Coos Bay Fire and Rescue said it happened just before 4 a.m.

They said when they got there, the home was engulfed in flames and only a few framing members were still standing.

They said it isn't the first time this house caught fire. There was another fire back in November 2017. Crews determined it to be arson and turned over the case to the sheriff's office.

Sunday's fire is considering highly suspicious. Firefighters couldn't find out what caused the fire because of the amount of damage.
