Fire officials continue to investigate the cause of the fire that gutted a commercial building Tuesday evening near downtown Burbank, but said the blaze caused $1.75 million in damage.
"It could take weeks to find out the cause, or we could know tomorrow," Burbank Fire Capt. Ron Bell said.
Both the Fire Department and insurance company investigators continue to sift through the charred building at San Fernando Boulevard and Santa Anita Avenue to determine what set off the two-alarm fire in the wholesale distribution company.
On Tuesday, Carlo Sayegh, the business owner and 18-month tenant of the building, said that he locked up at 5:30 p.m., and that there were no signs of trouble. He returned to the scene after being contacted by fire officials.
