State fire investigators have ruled out arson as the cause of a Saturday morning fire that gutted the Angelo's fireworks warehouse near Sulphur.
Authorities with the Office of the Louisiana State Fire Marshal spent Tuesday morning looking into the source of the flames.
Investigator Nick Heinen said the investigation regarding the exact cause of the blaze was ongoing, but they do know it was not intentionally set. Nothing suspicious was found inside the remains of the building, and Heinen said foul play is not expected. He also said it may be awhile before a definite cause of the fire is released.
No injuries were reported following the fire that destroyed a warehouse belonging to Angelo's Fireworks Saturday morning. Around 150 people were affected by an evacuation and a shelter-in-place order.
Approximately 60 people were evacuated. A shelter-in-place order for the immediate vicinity was lifted after a few hours.
The Carlyss Fire Department received the initial call about the structure fire. The blaze took several hours to contain, and fire crews stayed at the warehouse overnight to ensure the flames did not ignite again.
