The state fire marshal's office is investigating a July restaurant fire in Evangeline Parish as an arson.
The Rendezvous Dinner Club was destroyed by flames in the early morning hours of Sunday, July 21. Eyewitnesses say the fire burned for four hours before firefighters finally brought it under control.
State Fire Marshal Butch Browning says the incident is being treated as an intentionally set blaze. Browning declined to answer other questions about the specifics of the fire due to the nature of the investigation.
