CAMBRIDGE, Ohio -- One week after fire gutted Bon-Ton Studios and the apartments above it in downtown Cambridge, the cause of the blaze is still undetermined.
Cambridge Fire Chief Jeff Deeks told AVC News on Friday morning that the State Fire Marshal's Office has completed its investigation, but as of yet, have not named the source or cause of the blaze. Crews on the scene last Friday speculated that the fire began when a couch ignited in one of the upstairs apartments - again, investigators have not yet determined if this is the case.
In the aftermath of the fire, a group of Cambridge residents is gathering donations and supplies for those displaced by the fire. Local resident Melissa Earley said she has collected clothing, pots and pans, toiletries, cleaning supplies, small appliances, and other sundries. The Downtown Arena in Cambridge has even cleared space for donations of furniture and other large items.
Earley said that donations of all kinds are still being accepted. To learn more, call Melissa Earley at 740.705.0684 or visit the effort's Facebook page.
