South Washington Street Fire

A fire closed South Washington Street from I-40 to15th, early Thursday morning.

Fire crews were called to the area of 1611 South Washington, near the old Arnold Burgers location looking for flames and heavy smoke at 4:25 a.m.

When they rolled up on the scene, they found a trash fire between the burger shop and an adjoining neighbor building to the north. No fire was found in either building.

Fire officials report no injuries, and determined someone had intentionally set the blaze and it had gotten out of control.
