Authorities Seek Videos Of St. Marys Co-op Fire

(WIBW) - Pottawatomie County authorities are looking for any video people might have of the Saint Marys co-op fire.

The blaze early Friday has been ruled arson. The intense heat damaged nearby businesses, with total losses expected to top $1 million.

Pottawatomie County Emergency Management Director Bruce Brazzle says investigators want to study any home video people took of the fire to see if they possibly captured any evidence.

People who shot video are asked to call Brazzle at 785-457-3358 or email

Authorities are investigating whether the co-op fire is connected to an arson fire at a nearby home two days later. They say they have identified a person of interest in the house fire.
