WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The State Fire Marshal's Office does not believe there will be any sort of criminal investigation into a large fire that destroyed five Tippecanoe County homes, according to Wabash Township Fire Chief Ed Ward.
Ward said state investigators will be back this week with representatives from the homeowner's insurance companies to dig deeper into the cause.
As we reported last week, Ward said investigators do not believe gas was the primary cause of the fire.
The fire started about 3 p.m. on July 12 on Tesla Drive. A neighbor told News 18 he heard a "big boom" and came outside to find five houses in flames.
The cause is still under investigation.
