DEKALB COUNTY, GA (CBS ATLANTA) -
DeKalb County investigators called an early Tuesday morning fire at a warehouse "suspicious."
The fire happened at Two Men and a Truck moving company on East Ponce de Leon Avenue.
The 15,000-square-foot facility houses customers' belongings.
Erin Whitty, area manager, told CBS Atlanta the fire destroyed items belonging to only two customers who she said owed the company money.
"Two units, the stuff in the very back, that's the only stuff that burned. They knew their stuff was going to be liquidated," said Whitty.
Whitty said one of those customers who did not pay is a suspect in the fire.
"And then there was one small fire in the office that was deliberately set in an office chair. It's still under investigation," said Whitty.
Whitty said six units near the front of the warehouse that stored other customers' belongings were not damaged and the company notified them.
"We're handling everyone accordingly. None of our paying customers' goods have been damaged by fire," said Whitty.
A MARTA police officer, on routine patrol, noticed the flames shortly after midnight.
"Anything you'd find in a home that's being moved to another home is inside this building: clothes, furniture, washer, dryer, anything of a personal nature," said Steve Ham, Assistant Chief for DeKalb County Fire and Rescue.
No moving trucks were damaged and no injuries were reported.
