A home that belongs to a former D.C. fire chief caught fire two times in three days.

Prince George's County firefighters said the original fire started Sunday night in the home on Lihou Court in Fort Washington when a barbecue grill was placed too close to the house. That fire was put out.

When members of a cleanup company went to the home Tuesday morning, they saw new flames on the second floor.

Fire investigators said the second fire may have been caused by an electrical short.

The home belongs to former D.C. Fire Chief Theodore Coleman.
