Early morning Mendota fire considered arson

Posted by wlpo on July 8, 2011

A fire at a barber shop in Mendota appears to have been deliberately started, perhaps to cover up a burglary.  Firefighters went to the building on 9th Street before sunrise Thursday morning after someone called reporting smoke.

An investigation after the fire was out left investigators with the fire marshal’s office and police department believing it was arson and a burglary.

If you know anything about the burglary or fire, call Mendota Crimestoppers or the Mendota Police Department.
