Lauderdale County Sheriff's deputies are investigating an early morning fire at the Martin Grocery in northwest Lauderdale County.
Maj. Ward Calhoun, a spokesman for the Lauderdale County Sheriff's Department, said the fire started shortly after midnight today. Calhoun said while en route to the fire, a deputy pulled over a vehicle for a routine traffic violation and ended up with two suspects who may have started the fire.
Calhoun said this morning that no charges have been brought against the two teen-age suspects. He said the sheriff's department is still questioning the two suspects will continue to investigate the fire.
