FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — Fire officials in Fort Wayne say investigators haven't been able to determine what caused a massive blaze last month that destroyed much of an old warehouse complex.
Assistant Fire Chief Jim Murua says investigators established where the fire started but that the damage was too extensive to pinpoint the cause.
Murua tells The Journal Gazette that no signs of foul play were found.
The Aug. 19 fire east of the city's downtown burned for several hours, with flames shooting 50 to 60 feet high and black smoke billowing into the sky. Lawn care and auto repair shops were among at least a dozen businesses renting portions the two sprawling warehouse buildings.
Murua says no fire violations were found in a June inspection of the occupied commercial spaces.
