JEFFERSON CITY, MO (KFVS) - Officials investigating the November 14 fire at the Kennett Country Club are seeking the public's help in solving the case.

Investigators say arson caused the blaze that resulted in a total loss of the country club's clubhouse.

The fire was being investigated by the Kennett Police Department, the Kennett Fire Department, the Office of the State Fire Marshal and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.

"We are asking that anyone with information about Monday's fire call the Missouri Arson Hotline at 1-800- 39ARSON," said State Fire Marshal Randy Cole. "The hotline allows members of the public to call anonymously and offer information about a fire. Information leading to a conviction can lead to a reward of up to $5,000."

The reward money is coming from fire service organizations and the insurance industry. No state funds are used, according to Mo. DPS officials.
