LOGAN, W.Va. — Fire crews had their hands full in the morning hours of March 29 as fire engulfed five structures near downtown Logan.

Crews reportedly arrived to a scene on Draper Street that was reminiscent of an explosion as five structures were involved in flames.

At the time of the blaze, all of the buildings were unoccupied; however, no one lived in four of the five buildings.

The occupant of the fifth building was reportedly not home when the fire started.

Fuji Williams, with the Logan Fire Department, reported crews battled flames for around four hours.

The fire interrupted some utility services for nearby homes.

Arson is reportedly suspected to be the cause of the blaze, and the state fire marshal was on scene conducting an investigation shortly after blaze was extinguished.

No firefighters or civilians were reported to be injured from the fire.
