CAVENDISH — State Police are looking for the cause of a fire at an unoccupied Cavendish residence on Friday.

The Cavendish Fire Department responded to a fire at 56 Mill St. and found the home fully ablaze. Fire departments from Proctorsville, Ludlow, Reading, and West Weathersfield assisted in fire suppression efforts.

State Police fire investigators and the Division of Fire Safety were called to the scene and ruled the fire as suspicious. Detective Sgt. David Sutton said the fire was ruled suspicious and no natural cause could be determined.

The home has been unoccupied for several months, according to Sutton.
