Eufaula Fire

A fire that destroyed some tax records and caused minor damage to the Lee County Courthouse was possibly arson.

Sheriff Jay Jones said last Sunday’s blaze occurred in a basement records room. Investigators found some containers and "a string type of material that was being used as a wick."

It’s not yet known what liquid was in the containers.

He said the records room is normally secured and authorities are looking at who may have had access.
