Latest Club Arson Prompts Questions

There are now three arson investigations involving businesses in one Eastern Carolina city within the month.

The latest case was at a local nightclub on North Greene Street in Greenville. Monday morning, fire investigators returned to the scene to dig up more clues at club G.A.S., formerly known as Club Dynasty.

Greenville's fire chief tells us the club went up in flames just before five Sunday morning, just a few hours after owners say they closed up for the night.

While it's unclear, who started the blaze, we're told there were several places of origin inside the building. This morning, the SBI K-9 unit from Wilmington arrived to help in the investigation.

While this is fire has been ruled arson, fire investigators can not say if all the incidents are related.

But they tells us the August fourth fire at the Fulcher Tire Sales and Service and the Colortyme Customs Wheels and Tires on Memorial Drive are being looked at together.
