Fire Investigators Looking into Apparent Arson

Savannah firefighters were kept busy overnight putting out what appears to be an arson fire. About 2:30am this morning, they were called to a large building at the corner of Stiles Avenue and Louisville Road. When they arrived, heavy smoke was coming from the building, but they soon found out the blaze was coming from two tires on a trailer that had apparently been set on fire.

The trailer was parked only a few feet away from the building and the flames spread to a tree then to the roof. Quick work by the fire department kept the flames from spreading into the building.

Investigators are still trying to find out who set the blaze.
