Home Vang Used to Own Destroyed in Fire

A rural Minnesota home once owned by a St. Paul man who killed six Wisconsin hunters has burned down in what police are calling a suspicious fire.

Almost exactly one year after Chai Soua Vang killed the hunters, a fire razed the Brook Park house that once belonged to him.

The Wednesday morning blaze reduced the house to ashes and rubble. Current home owner Kyle Malle says the basement's concrete blocks were defaced with at least one profanity. Fire officials say they have collected enough evidence to deem the fire suspicious.

Neighbor Mike Harms built the house and eventually sold it to Vang, who was sent to prison for life. He says he's sure someone started the fire on purpose.

Brook Park is a town of 150 people 70 miles north of Minneapolis.
