Investigators say the fire that destroyed a historic bridge this weekend was intentionally set.

There is little left of the English River Bridge near Kalona.

Fire officials say they can tell from how the fire burned that it was no accident.

The city of Kalona was planning to renovate the bridge and use it as part of a trail project.

Those plans are now on hold.

Engineers will inspect the bridge to see if it can be saved.
