Suspicious Fire Investigated

The Savannah Fire Department is investigating a suspicious blaze at the Coastal Empire Exchange Club fairgrounds. Someone noticed the fire around 9pm last night in the club building off Medding Street on Savannah's west side. Firefighters got to the building and put out the fire pretty quickly.

The blaze was concentrated in the business office. Club official Sy Wright was on the scene soon after and checked the building. He tells us most of the damage is from the water used to put the fire out. Fire investigators were called to the scene to find out just how that fire started.
