Tuesday night flames were spotted from a section of the roof still remaining. Firefighters quickly put those out. But officials admit they are concerned about the fire re-igniting and spreading to other parts of the property that were untouched by Monday night's massive fire.
Mishawaka fire investigator Steve Gregg says a large group of insurance adjusters will be on site Thursday to conduct their investigation for people who are filing claims. More than 200 items – including collector cars, RV's, boats and snowmobiles – were burned up in the fire. Damage estimates will likely be in the millions.
Gregg says it likely won't be until next week before fire investigators can even get close to going into the debris to search for the fire's origin and cause. Steel beams are hanging everywhere and some walls that didn't cave in are lined with cracks.
"It's just not stable right now," stressed Gregg.
Heavy machinery will be brought in to move around debris so firefighters can put water on those hot spots.
"We'll have to take it slow, section by section," added Gregg. "With a fire of this magnitude the investigation is not going to be easy."
Gregg confirmed that electricity was running to that portion of the building and that there were LP tanks and gas tanks stored there.
However, Gregg believes most were drained.
“At this point we can't rule anything out,” Gregg said when asked about a potential cause to the fire.
