“Arriving firefighters saw only smoke and no fire inside each of the fourth floor apartments leading investigators to believe the fire was in a space above the apartments and below the roof, which is now mostly gone,” Jennifer Mieth, a spokesperson for the state fire marshal’s office, said in a statement Monday.
