FWIW, The Arg has been doing an absolutely fantastic job of covering
breaking news recently -- kudos!  I often read about local stuff in The Arg
before it seems to hit either the Daily News or the Trib.

Moscow police, firefighters respond to suspicious fire

Moscow police confirmed a fire at the District 2 Moscow Probation and Parole
Office at 2113 South Main St. shortly after 8 a.m. today.

Moscow Police Chief David Duke said the fire is considered suspicious and
police are investigating possible motives. He said there are no suspects at
this time.

Duke said the office was unoccupied at the time of the fire, but there was
damage to internal walls and one exterior wall, which was engulfed in flames
when first responders arrived. The fire was put out by 9:30 a.m. by members
of the Moscow Volunteer Fire Department.

Duke said the fire originated on the exterior west wall then burned through
the siding into the office where the fire escalated, causing major damage.
Duke said the office will need renovations due to fire and water damage. He
said windows and the west wall will need to be replaced and renovated.

The Argonaut will provide more information as it becomes available.
