Crews fight fire at under-construction apartment building

Posted:

RALEIGH COUNTY (WVVA) - A fire at a Raleigh County apartment building might be the work of an arsonist.

Firefighters were called to fight flames at the Coal River Road building around noon Thursday.

Crews were able to catch the fire in enough time to keep the structure standing.

No one lives in the apartments right now, the building has been under construction since last December.

Firefighters tell WVVA there are several clues pointing to arson, including the fact that there's no electrical service to the building.

The fire has been ruled suspicious and the investigation turned over to the state fire marshal's office.
