Suspected illegal fireworks started a fire that destroyed an RV Friday, and police Monday said they were tracking down leads and still interviewing witnesses.

Detective Sergeant Eric Macnab of The Dalles Police Department said the investigation was continuing. The fire was reported Friday night at about 11 p.m.

Police determined that night that a number of individuals had been lighting fireworks in the area shortly before the RV caught fire, according to police logs.

Another parked vehicle and a nearby home were also damaged, according to the logs.
