Suspicious fire at old Cahokia car dealership

August 31, 2010 (MASCOUTAH, Ill.)

It happened early Tuesday morning, just south of St. Louis, in Cahokia.

There were some 55-gallon drums filled with anti-freeze inside that helped fuel the fire.

The building was recently put up for sale, leading fire crews to call the incident suspicious.

No one was injured.

There was also another fire two months ago at an adjoining building.
