Cause of Apartment Fire May Not Be Found

By  | 

One week removed from an apartment fire that displaced students, and College Station investigators still have few answers about the cause.

Fire officials have eliminated some possible causes of the University Commons fire, but cannot pinpoint an exact reason for the May 3 event. The area where it began has no utilities in it, but the damage is so extensive that investigators are finding it hard to find a cause.

They say it a very real possibility that they could rule the cause as "unknown."

The fire ripped through the third floor of one of the apartment bulidings on that Wednesday evening. Twelve units in that building are not occupied at this time as clean-up and the investigation continues.

No one was injured in the fire. Residents who fled the building say alarms did not begin going off until well into the fire.
