Fire breaks out at a Winchester apartment complex and investigators say it's suspicious.

Firefighters were called out to an apartment on Ridgeway Drive, just before nine Thursday morning.

That apartment suffered both smoke and fire damage. The apartments around it also had some minor smoke damage.

No one was hurt.

Arson investigators think the fire was set on purpose.

Winchester police say they got a call shortly before the fire started from someone threatening to set a fire at the apartment.

Investigators spent most of the afternoon interviewing witnesses and say they are still gathering information before making any arrests in this case.
