The cause of the recent galena park fire has been found. Â After weeks of investigation the district attorney’s office says the fire that burned over 1,300 acres was started by a spark from an electrical fence. Â The discharge happened near the entrance of lory state park when a local resident was trying to make an electrical connection for the fence which set the near by dry grass on fire. Â And this early mid-March fire is already setting the stage for more to come this summer.
