ATF: Cause of Glendale (CO) Fire at Construction Site Undetermined

About ten days after a fire, and after five days of investigation by a federal agency, the cause of a fire at a Glendale construction site is still “undetermined.” More tests will need to be done if the fire was an accident or arson, reports

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is leading the investigation of the Dec. 14 fire at 801 S. Cherry St. in Glendale. That federal agency is responsible for investigating fires and arsons.

Although five days of examination and interviews have failed to lead investigators to determine a cause, ATF spokesman Special Agent Bradley Beyersdorf says the work will continue.

“The factors resulting in the finding of undetermined are not being released due to the ongoing investigation,” Beyersdorf wrote in an email.

The fire caused some parts of cars to melt in the parking lot of an apartment complex across the street.

Myeisha McGeachy was evacuated overnight because of the fire. The next morning, she found her and her husband’s car was badly damaged by the heat.

“Thank goodness we had insurance, we were covered, so we had our own backs in that regard,” she said.
