An abandoned farm house fire on November 20 in Doddridge County has been ruled an arson, according to the State Fire Marshal's Office.
The fire happened on Beverlin Road just outside of Center Point at approximately 9:30 p.m. Tuesday.
The State Fire Marshal's Office said the fire was related to a land and hunting dispute that happened earlier Tuesday between Doddridge County residents and an out of town hunter.
The owner of the farm house lives in Hancock County and recently said that no one was to be hunting on his land, according to the fire marshals office.
Several individuals are being questioned by the State Fire Marshal's Office at this time.
