Fire Officials Believe They Know the Cause of North Side Fire
LETHBRIDGE: Fire officials believe the wind may have played a major role in starting a fire at a business along 5th Avenue North November 27th.
Chief Fire Marshall Ken Knox explained that they think the wind moved a unit on the business roof top. They believe that may have ruptered a small gas line, which was then ignited by an electrical spark.
Knox stated that they were able to contain the blaze to the roof of the building and that it did not spread to any of the surrounding structures.
He added that they don't have a damage estimate at this point.
