Posted: Updated:

BLUFFTON, SC (WTOC) - A fire in the Lowcountry raising some serious questions and leads to some arrests.

It happened at about 2:30 a.m. Monday at Dan's Fan City in Bluffton. It's in the same shopping complex where police believe a USA Rider motorcycle shop was burned down due to arson.

Monday morning's blaze wiped out the entire backside of Dan's Fan City. The man who has owned the business since 2004 told WTOC that he is just devastated.

Bluffton police are not saying how the fire ignited, but that a back window was broken.

Police then went to Ligato's Fine Jewelry, which is down the road on 278 on a report of an alarm going off, and saw a suspicious vehicle leaving.

Two individuals were arrested on charges of arson and burglary. One is also being charged with burglary and arson in connection to the Easy To Own, which is also in Bluffton.

South Carolina Law Enforcement Division is also part of the investigation.
