Three Fires In Post Falls May Have Been Set Intentionally

By From Staff And Wire Reports

Post Falls fire investigators suspect three fires started during a 40-minute span early Tuesday may have been intentionally set.

The fires were discovered beginning about 1 a.m. in a semi-rural area along Chase Road, said Post Falls Division Chief Don McNett. No one was injured, but a garage was destroyed in one fire. Two other fires scorched dry grass in separate open fields. Investigators have not determined the cause of the fires.

“They all are suspicious in nature,” McNett said. “Any of the obvious and natural causes are not there.”

The fires were about 1-1/2 miles apart. Damage to the free-standing garage was estimated at $4,000. A nearby double-wide mobile home received minor heat damage, but did not catch fire.

The field fires burned one patch about 40 feet in diameter and another about 10 feet in diameter.
