Investigators with the Marietta Fire Department say arson is to blame for an early morning fire at an inn on North Cobb Parkway.
They say units were called to the Sun Inn at around 2:45 a.m. When they arrived, flames were visible from the two story motel. The fire was quickly extinguished. Some guests were displaced by the fire, and the motel provided other rooms for them, say authorities.
Authorities say they identified a suspect and arrested Carlous Deushawn Banks, 37, of Atlanta. They believe the blaze may be connected to other fires in the metro area.
The incident remains under investigation.
