Paul's home was set on fire on Tuesday morning, hours before a blaze broke out at the Colts Neck home belonging to his brother, Keith Caneiro, which is also being investigated as arson.

Keith, the CEO of tech company Square One in Asbury Park, was found shot dead outside his house, according to NBC Philadelphia. The bodies of his wife, Jennifer Caneiro, 45, and their two kids were discovered inside the home.

There were no injuries reported at the Ocean Township fire and authorities have not said whether the two blazes are connected.
