Tulsa Fire investigators believe an arsonist is responsible for a fire that destroyed a Tulsa car dealership. Two buildings at the "First Tulsa Outlet" at 22nd and Sheridan went up in flames early Wednesday morning.

Fire investigators say there are no signs the fire started in one building and then jumped to the other building. They say it is a clear case of arson.

Authorities say the dealership has been vandalized several times in the past month. Tulsa Fire officials believe the same vandals may also be responsible for this fire.

"Certainly someone has had an eye on this facility for some time. He may have something against this," said Tulsa Fire Captain Larry Bowles.

Anyone with information about this fire is encouraged to call the Arson Fire hotline at 596-ARSN.
