Antlers Convenience Store Labeled Arson

8-23-05 - A fire at an Antlers Convenience store has officially been labeled the work of an arsonist.

Volunteer firefighters responded to the handy shop on Main Street early Sunday morning, but it was already beyond rescue.

Today, the state fire marshall ruled it arson. The store has been empty for more than a year.

Fire investigators believe the person responsible set another fire minutes before at a used car lot across town in attempts to distract attention from the fire on Main Street.

Police have two suspects but so far have not made any arrests.
