MARTINSVILLE, Va. (AP) - Martinsville Fire Chief Kenneth Draper says the cause of a fire at an old furniture plant may never be known.

Draper tells media outlets that the fire burned several buildings at the former American of Martinsville plant Monday night.

Firefighters have contained the fire. Draper says investigators can’t enter the buildings until the fire burns itself out.

He says investigators may never be able to determine the cause of the fire, depending on the extent of interior damage.
