PORT DOUGLAS — A fire that leveled a three-story home here Aug. 31 has been ruled an arson, State Police said.

New York state and Essex County fire investigators have been unable to find a non-suspicious cause for the fire at 21 Kessel Park Road and have ruled it an arson until another cause can be determined, New York State Troop B Trooper Jennifer Fleishman said.

No arrests have been made, Fleishman said.

The fire started at about 5:30 a.m. Aug. 31 and was extinguished by 11 a.m., she said.

No one was at home when the fire started, she said.
