BONHAM, TX -- The cause of a fire that destroyed a century-old Bonham business is undetermined.

Morris Mattress was the oldest original building in Bonham, until it burned to the ground in an overnight fire a week and a half ago.

Antique mattress manufacturing machines and materials made the fire difficult for firefighters to extinguish.

Fire Marshal Bruce Caylor says there was some electrical shorting in the walls of the building, but they can't rule whether that caused the fire.
