Federal and state agencies are investigating a $2 million fire suspected of being arson along the Dakota Access Pipeline in central Iowa, Kallanish Energy reports.

The fire occurred last weekend near Reasnor in Jasper County. An excavator and three bulldozers owned by a contractor were destroyed.

No arrests have been made. The fire is being investigated by the Iowa Fire Marshal Division and the FBI.

A similar arson fire took place on Aug. 1 at the same site, about 30 miles east of Des Moines.

Construction has resumed on the 1,172-mile pipeline with its $3.8 billion price tag. It will move Bakken Shale oil from North Dakota to Illinois. It is being developed by Dallas-based Energy Transfer Partners.

The Standing Rock Sioux and supporters have been protesting the pipeline’s construction in North Dakota.
