East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service is planning a fire investigation following a house fire in Rottingdean yesterday.
Crews were called to the detached home on Cranleigh Avenue at 15.31 on 7 November 2013 and found the building well alight.
At the height of the incident, seven fire engines were at the scene, along with two water bowsers and the aerial ladder platform.
Main jets and foam were used to bring the fire under control.
By around 20.00 the crews were damping down the building.
The property was badly damaged.
The cause of the fire has not yet been established.
A fire investigator is due to meet with UK Power and a building inspector this morning to assess whether it is safe to enter the building.
