Cause Of St. Charles Motel Fire Still Unknown
Nearly a week after a man died in a southern Minnesota motel fire, the cause of the disaster is still a mystery...
The state fire marshal continues to look into the Thursday night fire at the Downtown Motel of St. Charles. A motel guest, Vincent Wright of South Dakota, died in the fire. Wright was the only person in the building when the flames began. Officer Renee Hewitt of the St. Charles police department says if investigators thought the fire was arson, they would have said so by now. Half of the units at the motel were damaged by the fire.
