Origin Of Charleston Fire Discovered

June 23, 2007

Federal investigators say they have traced the origin of the fire that killed nine firefighters back to a loading dock.

The ATF says investigators have finished picking through the remains of the Charleston, South Carolina furniture store. But authorities did not say if they have pinpointed the cause of the deadly blaze.

Investigators say they have more evidence to sift through and that it will be a lengthy, meticulous process.

Thousands turned out yesterday for the memorial service of the
nine men killed in the flames on Monday.
