Federal team called in to investigate latest Okmulgee fire

Updated:
(Okmulgee-AP) -- The Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms is
expected to arrive today to begin investigating a recent Okmulgee
fire. That blaze destroyed parts of a historic downtown block.

The help was prompted by preliminary findings of a certified
fire investigator from the A-T-F office in Tulsa.

Although arson hasn't been ruled out, the cause of the fire
remains undetermined. Samples were taken after an
accelerant-sniffing dog pointed to several areas of the debris
yesterday.

The Labor Day fire was the second downtown fire in Okmulgee in
three months. A blaze on June 8th destroyed a half-block of
buildings, including files in the district attorney investigator's
office.
