VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –Arson could be the cause of a fire that destroyed a Valdosta business early Monday morning.

This is what's left of Townmart Fashion on Lee Street.

The building was fully engulfed in flames when firefighters were alerted Monday morning around 4:26.

The store sold clothing and shoes. It's a total loss.

"At this time we have ruled out any accidental causes," said Valdosta Fire Chief J.D. Rice. "We are looking at the fire as possibly being intentionally set."

Chief Rice says they're sending evidence to crime lab to find out whether some kind of accelerant was used.
