The Wisconsin State Fire Marshal says the fire that destroyed the warming house of a northern Wisconsin ice rink was not arson. 

The Iron River Police Department posted on their Facebook page Wednesday that the marshal had inspected the fire. 

They expect possible charges for negligent use of burning materials to be filed.

Police say three teenagers were seen in the warming house shortly before the blaze started and were taken into custody.

The warming house was destroyed in early April.
