IMAGE: Stephen Sostaric Milwaukee officials say they've identified two suspects in connection with the Patrick Cudahy meat plant fire on July 5th, which caused over $50-million in damage. It took over 150 firefighters three days to extinguish the fire. Cudahy police chief Thomas Poellot says survelance video was examined and found that a military flare that landed on the roof caused the blaze.

"We do not believe that the fire was intentionally set by the suspects, but we do believe that these actions were reckless and that the safety of many people was put at severe risk."

Officials wouldn't say how the suspects managed to have military flares in their posession.
