The Cowlitz County Sheriff’s Office is being called in to help investigate a fire reported yesterday morning at a vacant home on Burdick Place near Kelso as a possible arson. Cowlitz 2 Fire and Rescue was called out to 26 Burdick Place at about 6:45 yesterday morning, when heavy smoke was seen coming from the eaves and garage of the home. Several units were called in from the Columbia Heights station and from the main station in Kelso. The fire was put out, but it was noted that the home is currently unoccupied. Around 1:15 pm, a call went out to the Sheriff’s Office, asking for Deputies to respond. They’re currently calling the origin of the fire “suspicious.” The fire did an estimated $15,000 damage to the empty building.
