Longview Arson Investigated

        Longview firefighters are called out to a suspicious fire early this 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, we believe we're dealing with an arson, we're working right now to find out who is involved and possibly prosecute someone" said Longview deputy fire marshal Joey Cowan.      

 Anyone with information on the fire is asked to call the Longview fire department. Bob Hallmark reporting/bhallmark@kltv.com
