A popular Travelers Rest eatery that was destroyed by fire Thursday may have been intentionally set, according to investigators.
North Greenville County Fire Chief Lee Kelly said it may have been arson and they are investigating the fire further after the blaze destroyed Traveler's Restaurant along U.S. 25 early Thursday morning.
Kelly said they have sent samples to be tested to see if accelerant was used. He said the fire started in the back corner of the restaurant where dishes were cleaned, but there was no cooking equipment where the fire started.
