" the house was not occupied at the time of the blaze." Does that mean no one was home at the time or that no one actually lives there?

Hey Craig- I was unable to get in touch with the Ann Arbor Fire Department to answer that question (I had the same one) and the release I received was unclear, but if I hear anything I will be sure to post an update in the comments!
