Fire which destroyed two campers in Emmett was incendiary in nature. That’s according to Pottawatomie County Fire Supervisor Jared Barnes, who visited with State Fire Marshal officials early Friday. Barnes added persons of interest are being interviewed in connection with the case. No arrests have been made at this time.
Damage is estimated at $1,000 to the Winnebago type camper on a chassis and camper trailer destroyed in the Wednesday night fire.
