The house fire last Saturday south of town at 561 Terrace View has been determined an arson.
An origin and cause investigation by the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office, Libby Fire Department, and G4S Compliance & Investigations investigators have concluded that the fire was intentionally set by means of an ignitable liquid as an introduced fuel source.
The fire, at 6 p.m. last Saturday, December Dec. 1, caused an estimated $150,00 damage to the two-story, ranch-style home owned by Larry Hanson. Hanson was on vacation at the time. The house was unoccupied. No one was injured. A criminal investigation of the circumstances surrounding the fire continues.
