Palmer- Details surrounding the warehouse fire off the northbound access road on Interstate Highway 45 is, "Still under investigation," according to Ellis County Fire Marshal Jim Pharr.

"We received a call really early in the morning about a possible structure fire. When I got there [the fire] had fully involved," said Palmer Fire Department Chief Ricky McElhaney.

It’s believed to have been a possible electrical fire started by an over loaded breaker but, " it was suspicious,"said McElhaney.

McElhaney also said he can’t continue his investigation since the evidence had been tampered with the following day by the owners.

Property owner Alex Holley had no comment to this matter.

Holley said, "I hope to catch the people who did it. There is a $10,000 reward (to whoever finds them]."

Pharr believes it was arson.
