Fort Dodge Firefighters respond to a fire in dumpsters within a cement structure outside Butler Elementary School around 6:40 p.m. The fire was intentionally set, said Fire Capt. Steve Teske. He said Fort Dodge Police have surveillance video of two juveniles who were messing around with it, and are following up on the situation. The fire was quickly brought under control. It did some damage to the dumpsters themselves, but there was minimal damage to the concrete floor and masonry sidewalls of the structure. It does not have a roof.
