Suspicious Fire

The Laurens County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to Cemetery Street, Ware Shoals at 8:42 last night to investigate a suspicious fire. Ware Shoals firefighters had extinguished the fire at the single-wide mobile home and were checking for hot spots when Deputy Paterson arrived. The owner indicated that the property had been vacant for the past two weeks without power. The only people that he knew had been there were working on the property to prepare it for the next renter. Pictures of the damaged residence were taken. There was no confirmation on the cause of the fire noted last night.
