The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office has concluded its part of the investigation into what caused the Nov. 5 fire at SK Fingerjoint in Libby.

“There is no indication to suspect arson” was the cause of the fire, said Undersheriff Brandon Huff Monday morning.

Huff said that the fire is still being investigated by the insurers and indications suggest a “probable electrical cause,” he said.
