A Delaware rapper and community activist says he never received any threats before someone set his house on fire.

Investigators determined the flames were sparked by an accelerant thrown at Richard Raw's home in Wilmington early Sunday morning.

He and his wife were rescued from the roof after they climbed through a second story window.

On Tuesday, Raw said he can't think of anyone who would want to hurt him, but he believes he was the target.

"That was intended for me not to make it out. But the good thing is I'm here. I survived," Raw said.

Raw and his wife have salvaged what they can, but their house is destroyed.

A Wilmington firefighter injured his ankle fighting the fire.

Investigators have not named any suspects in the arson.
