Aftermath of Building Fire

The four men who are allegedly responsible for the arson of this vacant building have been arrested by the Greenville Police Department.

Four men were arrested in connection with arson to a public building after investigators declared a structure fire was intentionally set this week in Greenville.

Greenville Police Department (GPD) and Greenville Fire/Rescue were dispatched to 714 Atlantic Ave. for a structure fire at approximately 4 a.m. on Thursday, according to a press release from GPD.

The press release said the vacant building was fully engulfed with flames by the time first responders arrived.

“Investigators quickly determined the fire was intentionally set,” the press release said. “With the assistance of GPD dispatchers, they utilized the city camera system to help develop suspects in the case.”

Detectives arrested 22-year-old Matthew Devoe Klettner, 23-year-old Thomas Andrew Hollingsworth and 22-year-old Evan Hugh Korbuesieski on Thursday afternoon, according to the press release. 

The press release said the fourth suspect, Daniel Ketroi Love, was arrested after he turned himself in on Friday. 

“The Greenville men were each charged with Felony Breaking and Entering and Felony Burn Certain Public Buildings,” the press release said. 

Bond information and booking photos will be available through the Pitt County Detention Center, according to the press release.
