Lac Courte Oreilles Popple Town house fire


On the night of October 23, 2008 the Lac Courte Oreilles Reservation, Cindy Kirk caught this short video clip of one of two tribal house fires set by a local arsonist. This community, known as Popple Town on the Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwe Reservation has had three house fires in about a one week period.

The houses had been empty because they are being rehabilitated or torn down by the LCO Housing Authority do to structural problems when they were built about 20 years ago.
