A suspicious fire in a vacant Sykesville house is under investigation, state fire marshals said yesterday.

The owner of the two-story, single-family home in the 6500 block of Freedom Avenue told officials that when he stopped to check on the vacant structure, he found ashes from a small fire in the living room.

The cause of the fire has not been determined. Damage was estimated at $100, fire marshals said.
