Greeneville Police say they are investigating a weekend fire as a homicide.
Police Chief Terry Cannon said the fire started about 9:00 a.m. Sunday at a house on West Main Street in Greeneville.

Officers say the suspect who started the fire tried to cover up Cooter's murder.
They have not yet made any arrests, but interviewed several people on Monday.
