An arson banner has been posted at the site of the former Highland Enterprise Lumber Company located in the 200 block of West Main Street in Hillsboro.
A joint investigation by the Hillsboro Police Department, Fire Department and the Division of State Fire Marshall has concluded that the January 8th fire was intentionally set. Division of State Fire Marshall Spokesperson Shane Cartmill said that as a result, a Blue Ribbon Arson Reward is being offered.
Cartmill encourages anyone in the area that may have information about the fire to contact the State Fire Marshall's office. They also want to hear from anyone who may have heard someone around town speaking about the fire with an unusual amount of interest.
