AUSTIN (KXAN) - An early morning fire at a South Austin storage unit facility brought out arson and burglary investigators. Police said someone cut off the locks and broke into about 28 storage units. Firefighters said three of those individual storage units were on fire.
A passerby reported smoke coming from the Lone Star Storage Units at 403 East Ben White Blvd. around 3 a.m. Austin police received a security alarm alert at the same time.
"Once we made entry into the facility, we did realize that there had been a burglary at this location," said AFD Battalion Chief Thayer Smith. "It was very obvious that there had been a burglary. So right now we're working that aspect of it with APD. And of course, we're investigating the fire cause to see if it's related to the burglary."
Fire investigators are still trying to determine whether the fire was set intentionally. It damaged three units in one building of the complex.
No one was injured in the fire, and police have not made any arrests.
