Firefighters responded to the scene on Wallace Road Northwest near the Marion Street Bridge around 5:30 a.m., according to Salem police.
The surveillance video, which was provided to KOIN 6 News by the owner of Lighthouse Financial Enterprises, Inc., shows a person lighting a fire in a garbage can outside of the building just after 5 a.m. The video shows the person quickly leaving the scene, then flames quickly grow and spread to the building.
The owner of the business told KOIN 6 News in a statement the West Salem location is closed “and the contents of the building are a total loss.”
The road was also closed for a period of time as firefighters battled the flames.
Authorities say the arson investigation is ongoing, but are asking for the public to report tips to 503-588-8477.
