Investigators say cause of St. Michael's fire unknown

Posted: Updated:
COLCHESTER, Vt. -

Investigators now say a fire that damaged a student housing complex at St. Michael's College was not caused by the building's heating system.

The fire last month damaged a row of townhouses. All of the students got out safely, but about 20 were displaced and several lost all of their personal items.

Investigators initially suspected a problem with a wall-mounted electric heater in one of the units was to blame. But they have now ruled that out as the source. The cause remains unknown, but is not considered suspicious.
