The fire began in a mattress on a roof deck at the back of the commercial building, ignited the siding and then the roof, causing an estimated $10-20,000 in damages.

The fire was jointly investigated by members of the Weymouth Fire Department, detectives from the Weymouth Police Department, and State Police assigned to the Office of the State Fire Marshal. A tip to the Arson Hotline (1-800-682-9229) helped to solve this case.
