BELVILLE -- The fire that destroyed the Town and County Motel on Monday night was arson, investigators said.
The fire began Monday evening in the motel office, firefighters said. Responders worked through the night until Tuesday afternoon to extinguish the flames.
Though investigators said they're sure the fire was set on purpose, they are not sure who set it, or how.
The blaze came less than a week after police raided the motel, shut it down and arrested the owner.
The owner, Albert Boney, is still behind bars.
