Feds Join Probe Into Suspicious Fire at IDOC Facility

Posted By on Fri, Nov 22, 2013 at 11:01 AM

The Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has joined local law enforcement in Moscow to probe a suspicious fire which broke out Nov. 21 at the Idaho Department of Correction's local probation and parole office.

This morning's Lewiston Tribune reports that Moscow Police Chief David Duke said his office was looking "into the possibility that a disgruntled parolee may have started the blaze."

About 25 volunteer firefighters battled the blaze which started on the west exterior wall of the Main Street building, spreading to the ceiling and attic.

Because the fire took place at a law enforcement facility, Moscow fire officials said ATF investigators were called in to the probe.
