Do investigators know what actually started the Evergreen Condos fire?
Holts Summit Fire Protection District Lt. Scott Pasley says the extent of damage is hurting the investigation.
“It’s going to be hard to get a definitive answer. A lot of times in a situation like this, the property owner’s insurance company will get an independent investigation team to come in.”
State fire marshal teams are working the scene. Forty residents got out safely.
Pasley says the apartment complex was a total loss. It took firefighters five hours to get it under control last Monday.
