West Side fire investigated as arson
Charleston firefighters are investigating another suspicious fire. A vacant West Side home burned Saturday night, and investigators say the fire started in the basement of the home at 2609 7th Avenue. Nobody was hurt, and firefighters were able to knock the flames down before they spread to other nearby houses. Investigators think the fire is arson and somebody has set the home on fire before. This is added to a list of suspicious fires on the West Side in the past few weeks.
