A Sunday fire at an apartment complex has been ruled arson by the Richland County Fire Marshal.
The investigation into the blaze has been turned over to the Richland County Sheriff’s Department, said Deputy Curtis Wilson.
Few new details about the cause of the blaze were available this morning.
The fire at Hunter’s Green Apartments on North Kings Way caused “hundreds of thousands of dollars” in damage, said Columbia Fire Chief Aubrey Jenkins.
The apartment complex, just off Trenholm Road between I-77 and I-20 is a 16-unit, two-story building. Three of the 16 units were not occupied at the time.
