FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - Alaska State Troopers are investigating a possible weapons misconduct case and a suspicious fire in Ester, the Parks Highway community just south of Fairbanks.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner (https://bit.ly/15MxJnP) reports an Ester resident Saturday night reported a neighbor had fired a round into the resident’s home.

Troopers responded with their Northern Special Emergency Reaction Team, which includes a tactical response vehicle.

Troopers searched a cabin where they thought the neighbor might be hiding but found nothing.

At about 5:30 a.m. Sunday, troopers took a report that the cabin they had searched was on fire. The Ester Volunteer Fire Department put out the fire but the cabin was destroyed.

The cause is under investigation and is considered suspicious. No one was inside.
