Nashville Fire Department Arson Investigators are searching for the person or people who started a fire inside the former Haddox Pharmacy located at 1508 Charlotte Pike, Wednesday January 2, 2019.

The firefighters made an aggressive interior attack on the fire and were able to put the fire out quickly.
