HARRISON TWP., Ohio (WDTN) – The Ohio Fire Marshal’s Office is ruling the cause of an industrial fire as undetermined.

Alpine Metal Finishing was gutted by fire nearly two weeks ago.

Fire investigators say the structure was deemed unsafe for investigators to continue looking into a cause, but the case will remain open.

The three alarm fire prompted an evacuation of homes surrounding the Drill Avenue plant.

Cleanup of the site is expected to take months.
