Firefighters from Dubois and the surrounding area had to battle temperatures around 25 below zero. Hurst says federal officials will help determine what caused the fire.

“Chief Franchini has stated that the federal tobacco, firearms have to come in because of the equipment they have that the county and state does not have. So they will come in next week and start digging through things, so of course the cause is to be determined.”

Hurst says there were no injuries and they have no damage estimate.
