Fire Destroys Abandoned EMS Business Top Story Mon, 20 Oct 2014 11:02:03 PM Bart Bedsole - Fire Destroys Abandoned EMS Business

CORPUS CHRISTI - Adrian Saenz had just mowed the grass at his former business over the weekend.

He was notified by phone late Monday that the complex was on fire.

The property on Rand Morgan near I-37 used to be the home of Mercury EMS until it went under a few years ago.

The complex was in the process of being sold, as well as the half dozen ambulances sitting in the grass.

Firefighters believe the fire was intentionally set, due to the fact that multiple points or origin were found at the property.

When the first crews arrived at the scene, they found heavy flames and smoke.

Almost immediately, firefighters were told to remain outside the various buildings, due to the intensity of the fire and the fact that it was an abandoned business with minimal possessions inside.

No one was hurt in the fire.

Once all the hot spots are extinguished, arson investigators will try to pinpoint the cause, and work to identify who might have started it.

Saenz said he can't think of anyone who would want to burn down his former business.

He believes the property was still insured.
