ROME, N.Y. -- Rome police continue to investigate last week’s fire on South James Street.

The fire started just after midnight Friday morning.

Fire officials say smoke was coming out of all sides of the home when they got on scene.

They say the homeowner approached firefighters, saying the house was empty and that a tenant had moved out earlier in the day.

The damage was limited to the room where it started and a living room, but there's heat and smoke damage to the rest of the home.

Fire officials again are calling this fire suspicious in nature.
