Arson is believed to be the cause of a fire that destroyed a house and a commercial building in Westerly.  Officials say the fire started early yesterday in the vacant home on Canal Street and quickly spread to the building housing the Trash and Treasures store.  The arson determination was made because the town-owned home was unoccupied and did not have electricity.  The town purchased the home with federal grant money after it was heavily damaged by Pawcatuck River flooding in 2010.
