A fire that ignited at a self-storage facility in Evansville, Ind., this week is being investigated as arson. Several units at Bee Hive Mini Storage were destroyed in Monday’s blaze, according to the source.
Crews were dispatched to 501 S. Tekoppel Ave. just before 7 p.m. The fire was contained to one building that included about 30 units, with nearly all sustaining smoke damage, according to Mike Larson, division chief for the Evansville Fire Department. Crews contained the threat within an hour and a half, and no one was injured.
Although the cause of the conflagration is still under investigation, the fire department filed an arson report with police, the source reported.
Opened in 1985, family-owned Bee Hive offers more than 180 units across several buildings. The gated property provides 24-hour access.
