BUTTE, Mont. -

The Butte-Silver Bow Fire Department says a fire that destroyed a trailer house in Butte was intentionally set.
    
Fire marshal John Lasky tells The Montana Standard the trailer was a rental and the occupants were being evicted. Undersheriff George Skuletich says the occupants were supposed to have vacated the trailer in December.
    
Lasky says the fire department and police are still investigating the cause of the blaze, which was reported early Monday afternoon.
