The Evansville Police Department is looking into a suspected arson at a local business.
EPD officers went to a reported arson in progress at the Snack Shack at the corner of Jeanette Avenue and Covert Avenue late Monday night just after 11:30 p.m.
Dispatch told officers that the person who called 911 said they saw two people who looked like kids trying to light the business on fire and that they took off running south toward Pollack Avenue. Officers coming from that direction said they didn't see anyone leaving the area.
When authorities arrived at the scene, the fire had already been extinguished, but some damage was caused to the building.
Police say they spoke with the person who reported the incident, but that they couldn't provide a description of the suspects or what they were wearing.
The Evansville Fire Department said that the fire was started with matches and lighter fluid.
We're told this is the second time this week that someone has tried to set the Snack Shack on fire.
No further information has been made available at this time.
