Fire marshal to
investigate cause of potato shed fire
A Klamath County Fire District No. 1 investigator
plans to be back at the scene today of a Saturday
fire that gutted a potato shed near the intersection
of Stateline Road and Highway 39.
Scott Rice, deputy fire marshal, said he should have
the cause of the fire at the L&M Produce shed
determined this afternoon.
Fire tore through the 180-foot-by-120-foot building,
causing much of the roof to collapse and destroying
the packing equipment inside.
The damage estimate for the building and equipment
is $1.5 million and the inventory could be another
$1 million, Rice said.
The company only dealt with potatoes and they
shipped them to Sacramento, San Francisco and Los
