Cause of trailer fire undetermined

Tuesday, April 3, 2001

A fire that destroyed the home of the Ramiro and Norma Rendon family will remain undetermined, Storm Lake Fire Chief Mike Jones said yesterday.

"There was no heat source in the immediate area," Jones said.

The fire broke out shortly before 6 p.m. on March 19 at the residence, located at 604E West 8th St.

Also in other news, an attempted arson at the Buddhist Temple of Storm Lake remains under investigation by the Storm Lake Police Department.

The Storm Lake Police and Fire Departments responded to the temple on March 20 to a report of a forced entry and attempted arson in an upstairs bedroom.

While on scene, investigators also discovered a device believed to be a possible explosive.

Storm Lake Police Chief Mark Prosser said the police department is continuing to do interviews in connection to the incidence.
