Investigators Release Scant Details on Fire

MIDWEST CITY, Okla. (AP) - Authorities have finished their investigation of the spot in Midwest City where a fire that destroyed 70 homes began, but they wouldn't say what they found.

Fire officials said Thursday the origin and cause of the fire have been determined but that releasing details could compromise the investigation.

Midwest City police Chief Brandon Clabes says his department is working the case. No arrests have been made.

Fire Marshal Jerry Lojka (LOY'-kah) has said the fire was set on April 9 near a wrecker service, but that it wasn't clear whether there was malicious intent. He said young people from nearby schools are known to gather there and investigators were looking at the chance youngsters may have been responsible.
