BECKLEY - A fire in Beckley appears to be the act of arson.
Beckley Fire Chief Billie Trump says a fire on Seaver Lane that happened Monday night around 10:30 is being investigated as an arson.
It was unoccupied building and power was cut off at the time. The fire started in the basement and broke though the first floor. A Beckley Police Officer noticed the smoke and called in the fire.
Trump says noticing the fire early saved the building from possibly being a significant fire, and crews were able to quickly contain it. No one was hurt and the incident remains under investigation.
