Original story: A June 16 burglary and arson fire at a company in Tyrone resulted in little damage and no injuries.
The fire at National Cement Company on Shamrock Industrial Boulevard was reported at approximately 10 a.m. after an employee noticed smoke coming from one of the buildings, said Tyrone Police Chief Randy Mundy.
Mundy said two of the buildings had been forcibly entered, with a cement saw stolen from one building and a small fire started in both.
Noting the comments of the Fayette County Fire Department, Mundy said a fire had been started on a window in one building, while the only thing that caught fire in the other building was a box of printer paper.
The incident is under investigation.
