PELHAM, GA (WALB) - The state Fire Marshall's office says a warehouse fire in Pelham yesterday was arson.

Early Tuesday morning the Redico fabrication warehouse on the 200 block of Progress Avenue in Pelham caught fire.

Intense flames ripped through the front of the warehouse, the office section of the building was destroyed.

Redico specializes in refrigeration supplies. It took firefighters over an hour to put out the fire.

Investigators say they ruled out all accidental causes, but aren't going into details yet about how they think the fire started.

The state fire marshall's office and the GBI are still investigating.
