(POCATELLO) – Bannock County Sheriff Lorin Nielsen says the Charlotte Fire was most likely man made. An investigation revealed no criminal intent, and crews have narrowed down the fire’s starting point to four possible locations. Although fireworks were available at the time of the June 28 fire, authorities do not believe fireworks sparked the blaze. Unless new leads reveal negligence, Nielsen says the case is closed.
