Warsaw Fire Dept. Searches for Cause

Today firefighters worked to determine the cause of a large fire that broke out Sunday morning outside of Warsaw.

Monday afternoon the Warsaw Fire Department and a K-9 unit searched what's left of the apartment and storage complex. It happened three miles south of Warsaw.

The blaze broke out around 6-30 Sunday morning leaving three families homeless.

Investigators believe the fire started in an attic because of an electrical malfunction.

“Its all down to the ground so a lot of this is going to happen through interviewing. The insurance companies are going to hire private investigators to look at the electrical components that were in the area. So we are going to keep everything where it is at and try to secure it until they can get here,” says Chief Michael Wilson from the Warsaw Fire Department.

“Yeah we lost everything but I'm alive and everybody is alive and we got out good,” says apartment tenant Ken Nine.

One woman suffered minor burn and smoke inhalation injuries.

Firefighters say everyone got out when they heard the smoke detectors go off.
