Downtown Fresno Fire Appears To Be Another Arson

Three businesses in downtown Fresno burned to the ground overnight. Fresno firefighters worked through the night and into the morning to control the fire and then try to figure out who purposely torched the place.

The fire started inside a mattress refurbishing business around midnight at Santa Fe and Ventura.

People were working inside at the time but were able to get out unharmed.

A commercial tire refurbishing, and a fork lift servicing shop were also destroyed in the fire.

Damage is estimated at $1,000,000.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation - though it appears this was likely set on purpose.
