UPDATE: Cause determined in Afton house fire


Reuben Moll sat outside his garage Wednesday, just a few feet from the remains of the place he had called home since 1945.

At age 91, the Afton man now enters a transitionary period: Moll must find a new place to live after his home was destroyed Tuesday by fire.

Words were hard for Moll - who was not home at the time of the fire - to conjure as he tried recalling his first sight of the burned-up home.

"A lot of things," he said as tears welled in his eyes.
