DOUGLAS, Ala. (AP) – Northeast Alabama officials continue to investigating a Friday fire that burned a school superintendent’s house, saying a home invasion may have taken place as part of the incident.

Marshall County Superintendent Cindy Wigley’s house in Douglas was destroyed by fire Friday.

Sheriff Phil Sims says Arson investigators are looking for evidence as to whether the fire was intentionally set.

It’s unclear why officials say that a home invasion took place as part of the fire. No suspects have been named.

Wigley on Sunday published a statement on her personal Facebook page thanking people for their support.
