MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) -- Investigators arrested the man charged with setting the fire that destroyed a building Monday night in Tillman's Corner.
The building is the former site of a restaurant on Highway 90 just south of Rangeline Road. Witnesses said the flames could be seen by drivers on Interstate 10.
Robert Joseph Eddins, 46, is charged with second-degree arson.
Mobile Mayor Sandy Stimpson on Tuesday morning told members of the Mobile City Council the fire was an arson believed to have been started by two homeless people who got into an argument and had nothing to with protests.
