LYNN, Mass. (AP) - Fire investigators worked through the weekend, yet still haven’t determined a cause for the blaze that claimed four lives at a multifamily home in northeast Massachusetts.

State Fire Marshal Stephen Coan tells The Boston Globe (http://bit.ly/1QaeF7C ) that investigators need more time to figure out the source and cause of the fire in Lynn given its size and scope.

Fire officials haven’t disclosed what they have gathered so far about the Dec. 4 blaze.

Lynn Chief Building Inspector Roger Ennis visited the home Saturday and issued a demolition order. It’s unclear when the structure will be torn down.

A pregnant woman, Sonia Cruz, was killed in the fire along with her sister Maritza, niece Yasmin and nephew Rodolfo Mercedes.
