Culpeper fire and police responded to a suspicious fire Saturday evening at an abandoned home, which at one time served as a stone plant office along Route 3.

Police termed the cause of the fire as suspicious. Detectives are investigating the cause of the blaze and interviewing juvenile persons of interest.

About 5 p.m., a call about the fire was received by the Culpeper County Public Safety Communication Center.

Flames and thick black smoke could be seen from miles away. The home was completely destroyed.

Culpeper County Sheriff's deputies and town police blocked traffic along Route 3, as fire and rescue units fought the blaze.
