Wilderness Rim break-in leads to arson investigation

King County Sheriff's officers are investigating a burglary that could have become an arson just outside North Bend.

Few details are available while the case is open, but King County spokesperson B.J. Myers said a residential burglary was reported to the Sheriff's office on Monday Aug. 4. Thieves reportedly broke into a home in the Wilderness Rim area and stole several items. They also poured "an ignitable liquid inside the house," said Myers.

No fire was started.

Both the criminal and fire investigations are ongoing.
