No Cause Found For York Fire Before Collapse

/ WDAC

YORK (AP) – Federal authorities say the cause of a fire in York that preceded a building collapse that killed two firefighters earlier this year will remain undetermined. The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives announced that it has closed its investigation into the cause and origin of the March 21 fire in a former piano factory in York. Officials said the March 21 fire started somewhere on the first floor of the south wing, but due to extensive damage and lack of evidence, no origin point or ignition source could be identified, “therefore, this fire is classified as ‘undetermined.”‘ 50-year-old Ivan Flanscha and 29-year-old Zachary Anthony died in a wall collapse the day after the fire as they searched for hot spots. Two other firefighters were seriously injured.
