HAZELWOOD, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

Police are investigating a house fire in Hazelwood Friday morning; one that the Bomb and Arson Squad have deemed as intentional.

Fire crews said they were called about a house fire in the 200 block of Reasor Drive around 1:00 a.m.

Crews on scene were able to quickly extinguish the flames and clear the smoke coming from the home.

Officials originally considered the fire suspicious because a neighbor said they saw a car flee the home at a very high speed.

The home is occupied, but no one was home at the time.

The Bomb and Arson Squad is handling the incident.

The investigation is ongoing.
