JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) - A fire that heavily damaged six businesses in a Jackson strip mall building was human-caused.
Investigators say evidence collected at the scene of the April 19 fire has been sent to the Wyoming State Crime Laboratory to see if the blaze was set intentionally or was an accident.
The fire that spread through a portion of Grand Teton Plaza within a half hour may have started at the front of the Habitat For Humanity portion of the building. It destroyed the wooden facade of the building and most of the contents of the six businesses that rent space there.
Town spokeswoman Charlotte Reynolds has said the damaged businesses also include two restaurants, a gun shop, an engraving business and a laundry.
