TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Florida State Fire Marshals are investigating a potential case of arson in the capital city.

Just after 9pm last night, crews from the Tallahassee Fire Department were dispatched to an abandoned apartment building on Pasco Street. 

A spokesperson with the fire department tells us, the fire was quickly contained and snuffed out before it could spread outside the apartment. The apartment building is currently abandoned, and no one was inside the structure when the fire started.

Arson is suspected in this case, but no suspects have been identified at this time.
