Fire destroys office building at Nash animal shelter
Posted October 5, 2013
Nashville, N.C. — An early morning fire destroyed an auxiliary building Saturday at the Nash County Animal Shelter, investigators said.
The building, which was used as an office and storage facility, burned to the ground before fire crews were alerted. An animal control officer discovered that the building had burned at about 7 a.m.
No animals were injured in the fire, but officials said the building was used to store food. Officials said they will be working to replenish the shelter's supply of food throughout the weekend.
Fire investigators were at the shelter Saturday afternoon to investigate the cause of the fire.
Nash County investigators collected soil samples to check for any accelerants and also searched for fingerprints.
