HOLLY HILL, SC (WCSC) - A federal grand jury has indicted a man for the Holly Hill Super 10 fire back in January.

The indictment stated Marvin, Leroy Capers-Smith Jr., 36, is facing one count of arson.

The fire began in the early morning hours of January 8, 2018, shortly after the huge snowstorm that hit South Carolina. When firefighters arrived on the scene, they saw flames shooting out of Super 10, Joy's Touch of Class and Goldstein's.

Super 10 was housed in the building's first floor while the second floor was used for storage. An antique car was stored on the building's second floor, Wyles said.

At least 10 fire departments, including Holly Hill Fire, Eutawville Fire, Providence Fire Vance Fire and Elloree Fire, responded. It took several hours to bring the flames under control.

No injuries were reported.
