An arson investigation is underway after a local business was found in flames this morning.

Just before 6:00 a.m., the Corpus Christi Fire Department was called to Corpus Christi Prosthetics for a building fire.

When they arrived at the building on the 1300 block of Santa Fe, not only did they find the fire, but a person inside the building as well.

That woman, who is in her 40’s, is now a suspect in the investigation.

Officials believe that the fire was intentionally set, as the woman broke into the business and set the fire from inside.

She could be facing charges of burglary and arson.

The fire was contained to one room, and no one was injured.
