State Fire Marshall visits Westclox building

Posted by wlpo on January 4, 2012

The Westclox building remains a crime scene.  Someone from the State Fire Marshall’s office and Peru Fire Chief Jeff King are at the building Wednesday.

Police Chief Doug Bernabei says investigators are looking for the origin of the fire and the cause.  A 15 year old boy from Peru and 17 year old Steven Gallacher of La Salle are suspected of starting the fire late Saturday night.  They were arrested only a few hours after the first 911 call.

Bernabei says they aren’t looking for a third person and he won’t say if the boys have confessed.
