Longview firefighters investigate possible arson

Longview firefighters are called out to a suspicious fire early Sunday morning at an abandoned Chevron station on Estes Parkway.  When they arrived, firefighters say the building was in flames and the windows were broken.  Investigators say the building is in a high traffic area and believe there was a purpose to this fire.

"Due to multiple points of origin and the location of the building and knowing that the building wasn't operating at the time, it has been abandoned for quite some time," said Longview Deputy Fire Marshal Joey Cowan.  "We believe we're dealing with an arson.  We're working right now to find out who is involved and possibly prosecute someone."  Anyone with information on the fire is asked to call the Longview Fire Department.
