“There are no new developments at this time,” said Michael Duchesne, assistant director of communications for the Ohio Fire Marshal. “It’s still an ongoing investigation and the cause is currently undetermined.”

The blaze occurred in the early morning hours of February 4, in the 7000 block of County Road 1 in South Point, and was first responded to by the Fayette Township Volunteer Fire Department.
