Grand Junction boy to be Interviewed After Fire Destroys Dewey Bridge

By  | 

Grand Junction, Colo. (AP) Authorities plan to interview a Grand Junction boy suspected of starting a fire that destroyed a wooden bridge across the Colorado river near Moab, Utah.

The 92-year-old suspension bridge burned Sunday.

Grand County, Utah, sheriff's investigators believe the 7-year-old started the fire while playing with matches. His name hasn't been released.

The Federal Bureau of Land Management has summoned a fire investigator to look into the blaze.

BLM spokeswoman Lynn Jackson in Moab says the investigator put off interviewing the boy and his family because they were “pretty traumatized” after the fire.
