FERGUSON, Mo. (KMOV.com) – Neighbors have rebuilt a memorial to Michael Brown Jr. after a fire destroyed the original memorial that was feet away from where he was fatally shot on August 9 by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson.

The new memorial is on the curb leading up to the Canfield Apartments. Teddy bears, posters, and flowers from the original memorial lie burned but covered with a white sheet.

"I think it may have been somebody trying to push our buttons, seeing what we are going to do next ... we've been slowly protesting every night. They think it's died down, but it never died down. It just started to become very peaceful," said Sabrina Webb, Brown's cousin.

Police speculate candles are the cause of a fire that destroyed a Michael Brown memorial on Canfield Drive Tuesday morning.

A News 4 photographer on the scene said firefighters used extinguishers, not hoses, to control the flames.
