Edgehill Drive Fire Under Added Scrutiny

Fire Marshall Sending Samples Off For Analysis

Samples are being sent off to the lab to make sure a fire that did about $2 million in damage was not suspicious in nature.

The Office of the Fire Marshall was called in after the blaze late Sunday night. Three under-construction apartment buildings were damaged, as were two nearby homes.

It appears the fire originated in the apartments, but as there was no power to the structures, investigators have to look for other causes.

Samples from the scene have been sent off to the Centre for Forensic Sciences for testing, so that investigators could rule out any suspicious causes to the fire.
