ST. LOUIS, MO – Firefighters believe a fire that damaged a north St. Louis liquor store Monday morning could be the result of arson.
According to KSDK, officials with the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department received the call about a fire at the M&A Market and Package Liquor at about 2:30 a.m. Large flames were billowing from the roof when fire officials arrived on the scene.
After the blaze was under control, fire investigators discovered gasoline on the roof. Since there would be no reason for the gas to be there otherwise, they believe the fire may have been purposely set.
No injuries have been reported as a result. However, the roof sustained moderate damage.
An official investigation into the blaze remains underway.
