SENATH, MO (KFVS) -

Senath firefighters received an early call this morning to a house fire on the southwest side of town.

According to the Dunklin County Sheriff's Department the fire was at a home on Ode Johnson St.

According to the Senath police chief, the fire is considered suspicious.

Senath police say the home of Kevin Morgan, Shawn Morgan's brother, also burned on Monday. That fire is also under investigation.

The home that burned Wednesday had no utilities. This is one of five suspicious fires police say are under investigation in Senath.

Investigators on the scene confirm this is the home that alleged child killer Shawn Morgan lived in when he was arrested and charged with the murder of 3-year-old Breeann Rodriguez who lived with her parents next door.

Morgan pleaded not guilty in court Wednesday for the murder of Rodriguez.

At the time of the fire Wednesday morning no one was living in the home. Police are still searching for the home owner.

The Missouri Fire Marshal was on the scene investigating the cause of this fire.
