May 14, 2013

Pettis County Sheriff’s deputies are continuing to investigate a fire called “suspicious in nature” that took place at a trailer park Sunday.

According to reports at 10:34 p.m. a 911 call was made to the Pettis County Fire Department on a report of a wooden storage shed on fire at 1305 East Boonville Road.

Considered a total loss, the shed held only donating clothing, said Pettis County Sheriff Kevin Bond.

“There was some damage done to a trailer that was adjoined to the shed, but it was minor,” Bond said. “We’re still following up on leads and the investigation but we have no evidence to show it was arson at this time.”
