BOTHELL, Wash. (AP) - Authorities say the cause of a fire that damaged multiple businesses in Bothell in July has been officially found to be undetermined.

Bothell city officials said Thursday in a news release they received that information in a report from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Officials say the massive fire that started in downtown Bothell July 22 in a building that was under construction completely consumed the wooden part of the structure and destroyed all potential evidence.

The report says due to the extensive damage, a clearly defined area of origin could not be determined.

City officials said about 20 businesses sustained significant damage and that rebuilding continues.

No injuries were reported.
