Police: Fire that destroyed Rolando McClain’s Alabama house ‘suspicious’


Dallas Cowboys linebacker Rolando McClain learned Monday that an unoccupied home he owns in Alabama has been destroyed in a fire.

And police aren’t quite willing to call it an accident… and why would they? Unoccupied homes usually don’t spontaneously combust.

“Anytime you have a vacant house go up, particularly one of that value, you have to consider it suspicious,” Tuscaloosa County Sheriff’s Lt. Andy Norris said Tuesday, per the Associated Press.

“Every house in that neighborhood is probably over $1 million.” he said.

According to reports, a car was seen speeding away from the house, located in an “exclusive” neighborhood, at the time of the fire.

The house was a six-bedroom, five-bath mansion on Lake Tuscaloosa and was currently listed for sale with an asking price of $1.5 million.
