Barn fire investigation concluded
Peabody Police Chief Bruce Burke has announced that the investigation into the Jan. 30 fire in Peabody, which burned the historic barn behind the home of Duke and Beth Eldridge on Maple Street, has been completed and is now in the hands of prosecutors.
Both the state fire marshal’s representative and Burke’s investigation indicated that the fire was suspicious.
“The report has been turned over to Marion County Attorney Susan Robson,” Burke said. “Any further action will come from that office.”
