Investigators in East Palo Alto say early morning fire that burned a house and several vehicles Monday is being considered suspicious.

The fire started just after 3 a.m. in a van parked outside a home on Stevens Avenue near Illinois Street.

Investigators say five people were in the house. They all got out safely, but the house suffered some real damage so they'll have to find a new place to stay.
