CRAB ORCHARD, WV (WVVA)- The West Virginia State Fire Marshall's Office is reporting that their investigation into the origin of the fire at the old sheltered warehouse, a part of the Lillian James Learning Center in Crab Orchard is undetermined.

That fire triggered a response for 14 fire departments and eight firefighters were injured, most suffering heat exhaustion. None of them sustained life-threatening injuries, and are expected to make full recoveries.

The West Virginia Fire Marshall's investigators say while the exact cause can not be pinpointed, they do believe the fire was accidental.
