WAUSAU (WAOW)--Everest Metro Police now say the fire investigation at an auto shop is not suspicious. Officers arrived on scene at 4:30 AM Monday at Steve Marten Auto on Schofield Avenue.
Initially officers told Newsline 9 they believed the fire might be suspicious because two cars were burned. After further investigation they say they believe the fire ignited in the engine of a car that was parked at the shop an hour earlier. They say that fire then spread to another vehicle.
Investigators say there were no sign anyone intentionally set the car afire--so they no longer consider the fire suspicious.
