The state Fire Marshal's Office said Wednesday that the fire that destroyed a building at Salem International University was deliberately set. Investigators say the fire began in the center of the building's first-floor apartment. Anyone with information is being asked to call the Arson Hotline at (800) 233-2353.


A fire broke out early Monday morning at some old college apartments in Harrison County. Now, an investigation is underway into what sparked the blaze.

Crews were called out to the old Salem International University apartments, known as "The Cubes", before 3:00 Monday morning. Flames had covered the building by the time firefighters arrived on scene.

Those apartments have been abandoned, so nobody was inside at the time of the fire, and nobody was hurt.

Investigators aren't sure if the fire is suspicious at this time.
