Investigators say funeral home fire was arson


CASTLEWOOD, Va. - Investigators believe arson was the cause of a fire at funeral home in Castlewood, Virginia last month.

The fire happened at Holding Funeral Home on October 22. No one was hurt in the fire, and no bodies were in the funeral home at the time.

A fire department was at the scene, but quickly realized there wasn't much they could do. The fire was mostly in the back of the building, but the structure of that section made it too dangerous to enter.

The Russell County Sheriff's Office is looking for any tips. If you have any information, please call the sheriff's office at (276) 889-8033.
