Who tried to torch Mama Hamil's?

MADISON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Who tried to torch the popular hotspot in Madison, Mama Hamil's Restaurant, this weekend?  

Madison Police along with Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms agents and other agencies are looking for suspects in the case.  

At this time we are told that no one is behind bars. Police say people are being questioned, including current and former employees.

The arson fire broke out in the early hours of Sunday morning. A witness saw flames shooting out of the southwest corner of the huge restaurant.

We are told that it appeared that someone had doused parts of the enclosed back porch and side with gasoline. They even tipped over the air conditioning units.  

Officials tell us the fire never caught up enough to do a lot of damage thanks to flame retardant materials in the roof.  

The owner said the arson was a minor setback.

Mama Hamil's was open for business today and packed with folks for lunch. Madison police tell us they were questioning people this afternoon.
