SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) – Sioux City Fire Rescue is investigating the cause of a Monday morning fire, believing it could have been started by someone.

Crews were called Monday just before 9:30 a.m. of a fire at a residence at 1310 1/2 Iowa Street.

An official told KCAU 9 that crews arrived on scene and found heavy smoke and the fire on the main floor.

They also said that the building was red-tagged in November of 2019, and no one was in at the time of the fire.

An official also said that there was more than likely a person involved in the cause of the fire. They said this is due to the fact that the building was red-tagged and gas and other utilities had been shut off.

Authorities are still investigating the cause of the fire.
