Possible Arson: Courthouse Fire

2-23-06- Authorities believe someone tried to burn down the Cooke County Courthouse Tuesday night. Around 9:00 p.m. a driver spotted a fire on the south side of the courthouse.

Firefighters were able to put the fire out before it did much damage. Officials found a small bottle of flammable liquid next to a window.

Since the windows were boarded up for construction the damage was not near as bad. The fire marshal is still investigating.
