Suspicious Fires Investigated in Boone, Story Counties
Authorities in two central Iowa counties are investigating a series of fires they say could be arson. The Boone County Sheriff's Office and Story County Sheriff's Office are investigating between 20 and 30 fires. Boone county officials say they're concerned with about eight or nine fires over the last year, including a late January fire that killed a dozen horses. More than two dozen lambs were killed in early February. While investigators say there's no firm evidence of arson, the activity is suspicious when the incidents are grouped together.
