The Bardstown Fire and Police departments are investigating a burglary and arson that occurred late Sunday morning at First South Credit, 512 E. Stephen Foster Ave., near the Justice Center.

Asst. Fire Chief Todd Spalding, the Fire Department’s arson investigator, said the break-in apparently happened a little before noon. An employee of an adjacent business, R&R Locksmith, came to work that morning, smelled smoke and called a manager, who phoned 911 at 12:13 p.m.
