A fire that caused about $150,000 in damage Monday night to a Frostee Freeze in southeast Fresno was intentionally set, fire officials said Tuesday.
Fire crews went to the store at Kings Canyon Road and Clovis Avenue about 9:30 p.m, said Fresno fire spokesman Koby Johns.
The store was already closed when the fire ignited, with an employee inside. Johns said the employee reported that a man broke into the building and lit the interior on fire before running away.
Firefighters are working with police to find the suspect.
