POLK COUNTY, Fla. (WTSP) — Investigators in Polk County are still working to determine the cause of a wildfire that burned more than 600 acres in Indian Lake Estates. To help figure out if it’s arson, they’re bringing in the big dogs—literally.
Booker is a five-year-old English lab. She’s one of only five K9’s in the state certified to sniff out liquids used to start fires.
“I believe 100 percent in my dog’s abilities,” her handler, Detective Jeff Batz, said.
