HAMPTON, Iowa — The Iowa State Fire Marshal's Office wants to make sure there's no crime involved in a fire at a judge's home in Hampton.
The fire was reported about 6:45 a.m. Monday. It damaged the house occupied by District Judge Stephen Carroll and his wife, Wendy Abrahamson. They were out of the country Monday, but Carroll's daughter had been watching the home. She said she left for work just minutes before the fire was reported.
