Closer To Finding Cause

Agents are getting closer to finding out what caused a fire at the Queen City Barrel company last week. Right now, they're talking to witnesses. They interviewed a man named Bobby White on Tuesday. He lives around the area, but because he does not have a place to live, police helped find him.

Next, agents will go inside the burned out building.

"We're waiting to get into the scene until it can be determined to be structurally sound, there's issues about barrels you see here to find out what's in these barrels," said Captain Dan Rottmueller.

Just to be safe, the EPA needs to make sure those barrels are empty. Also firefighters are still spraying water on hot spots. Captain Rottmueller says it probably won't be until next week when it's safe enough to go into the building.
