WEST HAVEN — The fire at the Family Dollar store Thursday is being treated as “incendiary” and is under investigation.
Officials said investigators from the West Haven Fire Marshal’s office, State State Police and West Haven police detective bureau.
It’s the fourth suspicious fire in the neighborhood in the past couple of months. The store is located at 38 Captain Thomas Blvd.
The area had a rash of arsons including several dumpster fires. Officials said these fires are not connected to some building fires near the new mall construction site.
