LEAD -- Lead police say a fire that destroyed a house was arson.
Police Chief John Wainman told the Black Hills Pioneer investigators believe the fire was deliberately set for reasons that he wouldn't discuss.
The fire was reported around 6 a.m. Monday and nobody was home at the time.
Lead volunteer firefighter Dennis Schumacher says that when he arrived, flames were as high as 25 feet high.
Firefighters were able to keep the blaze from damaging any neighboring buildings.
