Investigators: Suspect used accelerant in each room before apartment fire

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WVEC) -- Fire officials are investigating after they say someone set fire to a vacant apartment over the weekend. 

The fire was set between 9 a.m. Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday in a vacant apartment in the 3500 block of Station Court at the Summer Station Apartments. 

According to fire investigators, the fire was intentionally set after someone used an accelerant in every room of the apartment. The fire was lit, but did not extend beyond the small area of each room. 

No one was injured.

Investigators would like to speak to anyone who saw someone enter or leave the apartment over the weekend during that time-frame.
