Arson investigation underway

ARAB, AL (WAFF) - The Marshall Co. Sheriff's Office is investigating after an overnight fire.  Firefighters got the call about a fire at a home on Pine Hill Circle around 11 Monday night.  A neighbor says he woke up to three or four explosions.  He says the woman who lives in the home next door then came running over, saying that her husband set the house on fire.  Fire crews say the couple seems to be blaming each other for the fire.

Sheriff's deputies are treating the case as an arson investigation.  Deputies took the husband into custody a short time after the fire started.

The fire destroyed the mobile home and a car that was parked nearby.  No one was hurt in the fire.  The exact cause is still under investigation.
