    Investigators believe a fire that broke out at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses in University Heights could be a case of arson.

    The fire in the staging area of the church on Adams Ave. was reported around midnight, according to firefighters.

    The fire was knocked down quickly.

    The cause was believed to be suspicious in nature.

    "We do our own investigation after the initial knock down and were unable to find the cause determination. So the mast unit came out to investigate the fire," said Chuck Adams from the San Diego Fire Dept.
