Investigators unable to determine cause of fire that destroyed three buildings
NEWELL, Ia —
Investigators looking into a fire that destroyed part of a northwest Iowa community's downtown last month say they may never know exactly what started that blaze.
We're told tonight that the fire in downtown Newell started in the center building of the three that were damaged.
Two of those three buildings were eventually bulldozed after the fire was put out.
Because of the damage, investigators say they were unable to determine an exact cause but say there's no reason to believe the fire was intentionally set.
