Rocky Mount, N.C. — A fire that burned out a Rocky Mount Business Friday was arson, police said.
Firefighters said they found Alex's Mini Mart near downtown already engulfed in flames when they arrived around 1:30 a.m.
The store was closed at the time, and no one was hurt.
The building and its contents suffered extensive damaged that will cost nearly $200,000 to repair, investigators said.
Rocky Mount police said they have a suspect but have not made any arrests.
