Pierce County Sheriff's Department Investigator Doug Ducklow says joint efforts of the two fire departments stifled the fire and kept it from spreading. He confirmed early this week that the suspected cause of the fire is arson.

He continues to investigate the fire in cooperation with the DNR. Ducklow asks anyone with information about the fire or something they heard or saw that could relate to it - to call him at the Pierce County Sheriff's Department: 715-273-6807.
