KEIZER, OR (KPTV) -

Keizer police are questioning as many as four under aged kids about a fire that caused $100,000 damage in Keizer. The fire broke out a little before 3 p.m. Sunday behind the Cotton Patch on 4475 River Rd. N. in Keizer. Investigators say kids were seen playing with lighters shortly before the fire started in a lean-to behind the Cotton Patch.

The fire burned hay and several other supplies in the outbuilding belonging to Copper Creek Mercantile. Nobody was injured. Police tell FOX 12 the kids would likely face reckless burning charges and that there is no sign the fire was intentional.
