Just yesterday, moving crews had begun pulling out furniture and storage crates from inside the damaged building. Most of those items were spared from the flames.
Investigators say the fire likely started on that roof, where workers were using an acetylene torch to repair the structure.
“The crews that were working inside did try to knock the fire down with extinguishers but it grew too fast,” said Easton Fire Chief Tom Stone.MORE NEWS: TD Garden, Fenway Park Can Open At 12% Capacity For Fans Starting March 22
