Nashville firefighters investigated a house fire early Wednesday morning in East Nashville.

The incident was reported at about 2:30p.m. on Marswen Drive.

Fire investigators said this was the second time the same home was on fire this week.

It had previously been damaged in a fire late Monday night. At that time, one person was taken to the hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation, and an investigators deemed the cause of the fire to be electrical. 

According to Chief Donald Alford, Wednesday morning's fire is being called suspicious. He said rekindled fires typically happen much faster than 36 hours after the original fire.
