REDDING, Calif. -

A morning fire destroyed an outbuilding in Redding's Parkview Neighborhood.

The fire was reported just after 7 a.m. on Weldon Street near Mahan Street.

There's not much left of the outbuilding that burned.  The destroyed building is behind a house at 351 Weldon Street.  It's also behind another home on an intersecting street that burned down earlier this year.

Two people were reportedly living inside the building.  They were seen leaving the area shortly before the fire broke out.

The cause is under investigation but firefighters are calling it suspicious.
