KING SALMON, Alaska (AP) - Alaska State Troopers are investigating vandalism to property belonging to the Pebble Partnership in Iliamna (ill-ee-OM-nah).

Company officials say someone last week set fire to 10 plastic totes stored within a chain link fence at an incinerator site.

Pebble spokesman Mike Heatwole says the heavy plastic totes were 4-by-4-by-3 feet. With the cost of transportation, they cost $800 to $1,000 to replace.

The totes were used to move material to an incinerator.

Troopers say the totes were apparently set on fire from outside the fence.

Heat from the fire also damaged wiring at the site.

Illiamna is a community of 97 about 225 miles southwest of Anchorage.
