CARMICHAEL (CBS13) – A fire at a Carmichael home early Sunday has been ruled an arson. The flames broke out at the home on Landis Avenue near Marshall Avenue.

Firefighters say someone possibly used a flammable liquid to start the fire.

Investigators found graffiti on the door of the home saying, “no child molesters” leading investigators to believe that could be the motive for the fire.

A neighbor tells CBS13 that the home is a rental and that a registered sex offender had lived there at one point but had moved out.

The owner of the home, Derrick Nobles, declined to comment other than to say “my insurance is handling everything.”

No arrests have been made.

    it’s impossible to find a good place nowadays.

    Really? Investigators believe that may be the reason for the arson? A BLIND PERSON COULD HAVE SEEN THAT WAS THE REASON! They should have all child molesters live in a confined area of town so the rest of us don’t have to worry about them perverts anymore.

    Do any of you READ the article? It says “that a registered sex offender had lived there at one point but had moved out.”
    This man that got his house burned did NOTHING!
    This is exactly why you should NOT take it on yourself to punish anyone! Living like that makes you just as bad as them in a different but equally disgusting illegal way!

    I can tell you that the residents moved out days before the fire. That leads me to believe that the offenders were not the reason the house was torched. When all else fails, follow the money!
