Zanesville Fire Department Assistant Chief Kevin Thomas says the cause of a shed fire in the Sunrise Center is arson.

Thomas says the fire was intentionally set because the source of the fire originated from the outside of the shed.

It broke out around 8:30 p.m. behind the Knights of Columbus building.

Zanesville Police Department Lieutenant Tony Courey says a driver on Interstate 70 notified authorities about the blaze.

The fire was contained to the shed, which Thomas says was used for storage, but he says there’s no damage to the main building’s exterior or interior.

No one was in the main building at the time of the blaze, and no one was injured in the incident.
