Arson Blamed In Falmouth Store Fires

Officials are investigating two suspicious fires started in Falmouth early Monday morning, reports CBS Boston.

A two-alarm fire was reported at 12:50 a.m. at The Fabric Corner on Spring Bars Road, Falmouth Fire Capt. Greg Clements told WBZ-TV. Nearby houses had to be evacuated and the building was a total loss.

One family has owned the small fabric store since 1975.

Another fire started at about the same time at the Dollar Tree at Falmouth Plaza a few hundred yards away, Clements said. That fire was knocked down by the sprinkler system and caused minor fire damage and water damage in the business.

There were no injuries reported in either fire.
