Cause of fire at condemned house was human act
LEWISTON, ID - We have new information about how an an early Sunday morning fire in Lewiston started.

Fire Department Investigator Juulian Sorrell said the fire on Ninth Street was started by someone on a fold out bed, but so far he hasn't been able to figure out if the fire was accidental or intentional.

Four people were inside the structure during the fire, and it's been found that electricity was still present at the condemned residence. The investigation is ongoing, as the Lewiston Fire Department works hand and hand with the Lewiston Police Department.
