FLORA, Ind. (WLFI) - More than one week after a fire broke out at a Flora auto parts business, investigators say they've ruled the cause a mystery.
The fire happened just before 6 p.m. April 28 at the NAPA Auto Parts store in Flora.
The store burned for several hours, destroying the building and threatening the rest of the downtown area.
However, firefighters were able to keep it from spreading.
"We're just glad that we didn't lose the block and any other structures didn't get involved in it," Flora Fire Chief Mike Cottrell said. "We felt very fortunate that we had some help from mutual aid and that they were able to come in and help us prevent it from spreading."
Business owners say they're hoping to rebuild somewhere else in Flora.
