VINTON (KWWL) -
Officials are trying to figure out what caused a fire that destroyed a building at the secondary roads department.
The fire started around 11 a.m. Saturday morning in Benton County.
The building is a total loss and housed two snow plows, a pick-up truck and a skid loader.
Officials say they don't know how the fire started. They say they plan to replace what they can, as fast as they can.
"Snow plow trucks and the heavy-duty pick-up that we had all the chainsaws on -- we're starting to put a specification list together on how those were equipped," said Myron Parizek, county engineer. "Probably looking at replacing those with new equipment."
County officials say normally they send out 10 plows in snowy weather; eight of them luckily were in another building.
