Waverly Fire being Investigated as Arson

Updated: Monday, July 14 2014, 10:17 AM CDT

Tonight, the State Fire Marshal is investigating a possible arson just outside Waverly.

Last night around six o'clock, a shed burned to the ground destroying $100,000 Worth of contents, including sound system equipment.

A truck worth more than $10,000 is also a complete loss.

Fire crews from both Waverly and Franklin fought the fire for more than three hours.

Waverly Fire Chief, Glen Brown, says the biggest challenge crews faced was explosions coming from inside the shed.

"They had a settling tank and oxygen tanks and propane tanks and gas cans. We're very fortunate nobody got hurt and didn't hurt their living quarters," Brown said.

Chief Brown says nobody was home at the time of the blaze .
