Sheriff Says Dorner Cabin Fire Not Intentional

San Bernardino County Sheriff John McMahon said that the fire in the cabin where Christopher Dorner presumably died was not intentionally set by authorities, reports CBS News.

He said tear gas canisters fired into the cabin apparently set the fire.

He had served in the department for 15 years and was married with two children: a 7-year-old daughter and a 4-year-old boy.

A second San Bernardino County sheriff’s deputy, Alex Collins, was also wounded in the firefight and was still being treated in the hospital Wednesday afternoon. He is in expected to make a good recovery.
