(COLUMBUS) - The cause of an apartment complex fire that left more than two dozen people homeless will remain a mystery.

Inspectors have announced that they cannot determine the source of the fire which destroyed a 12-unit building in the Stonegate Apartments on June 25th. Inspectors, including those from the Columbus Fire Department, the Bartholomew County fire investigation team and a private insurance inspector, say that the fire was sparked on the outside of the building and quickly spread to the attic space. That fire eventually caused the roof to collapse.

There were reports on social media about fireworks going off in the area just before the fire, but Capt. Mike Wilson, spokesman for the fire department, said inspectors have found no physical evidence of that as a cause.
