Fire of unknown origins destroyed a College Street house Saturday morning, leaving fire officials investigating the suspicious blaze. The house was unoccupied according to Smithville Fire Chief Charlie Parker, the rental property unlived in since its renters moved out a few days before the fire. The house, at the time of the blaze Saturday morning, was for sale.
