Multiple fires were intentionally set at a vacant restaurant in northwest Charlotte, the city’s fire department said on social media Monday morning.

The department said 30 firefighters took 23 minutes to control the incident at the 3500 block of Mt. Holly-Huntersville Road just south of Highway 16. The site appears to be a former Los Arcos Mexican Restaurant.

Investigators later determined that multiple fires were intentionally set and caused $2,000 worth of damage.
