Overnight garage fire being investigated as arson

Posted: Updated:

The Evansville Fire Department's now investigating an Evansville garage fire as arson.

Crews were dispatched to this structure on West Tennessee Street early Wednesday morning.

Once the fire was put out, officials say there appeared to be a metal can with some type of accelerant. We're told that's why the EFD is investigating the fire as arson.

Officials tell us there was a lock on the door, but that it appears to have been forced open.

There's no suspect information at this time.
