A house owned by James Blake caught fire Wednesday morning killing at least three in Tampa Bay, Florida. Blake, a former American No. 1, and his family were not in the house his management confirmed. Blake purchased the 5,856 square foot, $1,574,000 house in 2005 and had been renting it out in the upscale Avila community, according to the Tampa Tribune.

Authorities in Tampa still don’t know the cause of the blaze nor have they released the identities of the deceased. Fire officials were first called to the scene at 5:45am.

Blake retired from tennis in 2013.

UPDATE: Four bodies were found in the house. Two adults and two teenagers were reported to have died due to circumstances other than fire, evidence suggested. Authorities said they believe the fire was set intentionally.
