Update: Mini storage fire investigated as arson
The Little Rock Fire Department is working to extinguish an early morning blaze at the Riverdale Mini Storage on 1020 Jessie Road.
It started around 4 a.m. Thursday morning. When fire crews arrived, three units were engulfed. Captain Randy Hickmon says now ten units have been destroyed. Investigators believe the fire was set intentionally.
"It looks like someone broke in through the fence, forced the locks on the unit...took whatever they needed to take and set them on fire."
Captain Hickmon says there are a lot of items they have to sift through to make sure the fire is completely out. He expected crews would be on the scene well after sunrise.
The investigation is ongoing.
