Clarksville Fire Department Battles Two ‘Suspicious' Fires

Posted: Updated:

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Two structure fires in Montgomery County have been called suspicious by officials.

Officials with the Clarksville Fire Department said the first fire was reported just after 7 a.m. Sunday, at a residence on Richardson Street in Clarksville. A second fire was called in minutes later at Jordon Grocery Store on Greenfield Avenue, near the corner of Paradise Hill Road.

Fire crews said thick smoke could be seen from the two, separate fires. Chief Ray Williams with the Clarksville Fire Department said both fires appeared to be "suspicious," but he did not immediately link the two.

"My house catches on fire right after the store? These things are not coincidence," said homeowner Alecia Moore. 

Officials said the cause of each fire is being investigated.

Jordon Grocery Store was said to have sustained heavy smoke, fire and water damage. Officials said it would be out of business for the foreseeable future. The home on Richardson Street also suffered heavy damage.
