The State Fire Marshals were investigating a fire that happened at an abandoned building in Chesapeake Tuesday.
The fire happened about 3 p.m. Tuesday at a building across the street from the Foodland in Chesapeake.
No one was supposed to be living in the building and Eyewitness News was told that all of the utilities were turned off.
Those factors led investigators to believe that a massive fire was set on purpose.
The building was condemned last year after fire crews found several violations and a meth lab found in one of the apartments.
The fire was reported about 3:15 p.m. at an apartment across the street from the Foodland in Chesapeake.
