Investigators continue to sift through the remains of a burned building in Walla Walla.

Officials now say the fire that killed 52-year-old Gary Cable Sunday was intentionally set by the victim.

Fire crews responded to calls about smoke coming from behind a home in the 800 block of North 9th Avenue.   An outbuilding behind a home on the property was fully engulfed when firemen arrived. They  were able to  extinguish the flames in a matter of minutes, but the structure was full of flammable liquids that made it more difficult.

After putting out the fire, they found Cable’s body inside.   It appears nobody knew he was inside when the fire began and the preliminary investigation shows the fire was likely set by Cable himself.   The house is owned by Flossie Cable, what relation she is to the victim was not released.
