Rush City Fire Believed to be Arson
The Rush City Fire department believes a shed fire Thursday may be a case of arson, this according to a release issued by the Chisago Country Sheriff’s Office. A 1993 Chevrolet Suburban caught fire inside a pole building, which also burned.
The fire happened at 2437 North Lake Drive, Nessel Twsp just before 7 a.m. Thursday. Authorities believe the case is arson because the SUV did not have any licenses plate, and the tires and rims were stolen. The vehicle is registered to a person in the state of Washington and is not reported stolen.
The department asks that anyone with information call the arson hotline at 1-800-723-2020.
The Chisago County Sheriff’s Office, Rush City Fire Department and Braham Fire Department responded to the blaze.
