The Friday morning fire that inflicted serious damage on the Calvert City Hall was no accident. Fire investigators said it was intentionally set to cover up a burglary. But authorities still don't know what, if anything, was stolen.
The call came in around 1 a.m. from a passerby. The fire was quickly contained, but a significant portion of city hall suffered extensive heat and smoke damage.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) was summoned to the scene to provide a specially-trained dog that sniffs out accelerants. Investigators said it didn't take long to find signs of arson.
The case now goes to the State Fire Marshal.
