ARLINGTON -- Fire department investigators were still on the scene about 10:15 a.m. today of a "highly suspicious" fire at a strip mall in the 1500 block of East Abram Street, a battalion chief said.
The blaze, which started about 6:30 a.m., heavily damaged the office area of the So Fresh & So Clean clothing store. A hair salon also in the building was not damaged.
Arlington Battalion Chief Jeff Holloway said police responded to a burglary alarm call between 4:30 and 5 a.m. at the building. That combined with the fire’s pattern of burning contributed to investigators’ viewing it as suspicious, he said.
No dollar estimate on damages had been made.
