Investigators said an arson fire destroyed a century-old building in Cleveland that was the Cleveland Chair Co.

Tennessee Bomb and Arson investigators and the Cleveland Fire Department continued Wednesday to dig through rubble left from the fire that was discovered early on Dec. 8.

Fire investigator Donnie Sullivan told the local newspaper there is no doubt the fire was set.

The building is owned by Jackson Furniture Co.

Sullivan earlier said homeless people had possibly been in the building.

Hopefully the investigators will examine whether the property owner(s) would benefit from the building burning down.

well, duh, if insurance pays off on an empty building that burns down, that's a benefit right there. I think some of the insurance companies are having these places torched so they can claim arson and refuse to pay.
