Despite report, no new details in Toomer’s Corner fire investigation

A still from ATM security camera on Magnolia Ave. show what police are calling a person of interest in the Toomer’s Corner fire investigation. However despite Tuesday reports, police say they have yet to determined in the fire was intentionally set.

A WTVM Facebook and Twitter post from Tuesday that claimed evidence in the Toomer’s Corner fire has police believing “it was probably intentionally set” is incorrect, according to Auburn Police Captain Tom Store, who says there are “no new details to share” related to the case.

“We have not determined the cause of the fire nor identified a suspect to this point,” Stofer  says. “If we do conclude a crime was committed and make an arrest in the case we will do a news release.”

Police are still trying to identify two persons of interest in the case shown here at Toomer’s Corner just before the fire started.

On Monday, Auburn University officials posted the latest update on the condition of the Toomer’s Oaks after the fire. It wasn’t positive.
