LADYS ISLAND, S.C. (AP) - Authorities suspect arson in a holiday weekend fire that destroyed a public pier on Ladys Island in Beaufort County.

Deputy county administrator Josh Gruber tells The Island Packet of Hilton Head (https://bit.ly/1JTCxbh ) that the fire occurred overnight Saturday at the pier on Crystal Lake.

Gruber says the pier was destroyed and parts of the boardwalk leading to it were also damaged. The first phases of the pier and boardwalk were completed last year at a cost of about $400,000.

The boardwalk and pier at 26-acre lake are part of a county network of small parks.
