Auto Zone or Fire Zone?

Someone doesn’t like this building. On July 17, at 7:54pm, fire units were dispatched to a commercial structure fire at Katherine Dr. and Main St. Units arrived to find a growing fire in a vacant building which had sustained a prior significant fire on May 10, 2022. The building was previously operated as an auto parts store and has been boarded up with a security fence on the perimeter since the May 10th fire, Due to the unsafe status of the building, fire crews took a defensive posture while making an aggressive exterior attack on the fire. Fire crews thankfully prevented fire spread to other nearby buildings and homes. The fire originated in the interior of the building and the cause is determined to be suspicious and is currently under investigation in coordination with the May 10th cause investigation.
