The state fire marshal has taken over the investigation into what caused the fire that destroyed the White Owl saltwater disposal site last week.

That’s according to the McKenzie County Sheriff’s Office.

The County’s Emergency Management said these fires tend to occur more often in warmer weather, and are often due to lightning strikes.

The state fire marshal cannot comment until the investigation is complete.
