Fire at Marine base possibly started by Marines tired of being in the field

A mysterious fire has rocked the headquarters building of the 1st Battalion, 6th Marines in Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, causing over $100,000 in damages.

The fire took place on the morning of February 11 and has since been deemed “suspicious” by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service.

“Crime Stoppers offers cash rewards up to $2,500 for information deemed of value or assistance to law enforcement,” Camp Lejeune posted on its Facebook page. “Callers to Crime Stoppers are not required to reveal their identities and rewards are provided through a code system.”

Rumors have spread that the fire was started by Marines of 1/6, who grew tired of constantly being on field exercises.

According to the Marine Corps Times, the fire caused no injuries and is still under investigation.
