FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) -- Sheriff's officials say a fire has destroyed about 60 marijuana plants in a garage being used to grow pot in Larimer County.
Sheriff's officials said Tuesday that it's unlikely any criminal charges will be filed.
Preliminary indications are that the fire Monday morning was caused by an overloaded electrical box that was providing power to grow the marijuana. Marijuana growing operations typically use a lot of electricity to power lights and fans.
