De Pere Fire Chief Alan Matzke has released a statement to Local 5 News, confirming that the investigation into the fire that destroyed a historic building on De Pere's east side has concluded, with the cause of the fire being listed as "Undetermined." Investigators were able to determine that the fire began on the main floor of the building. A dollar loss has not yet been calculated. Clean-up is expected to begin in the coming weeks and is the responsibility of the building's owner. "The investigation is concluded. The official cause will be undetermined. We know the fire started on the main floor of the address, 100 south Broadway, however, we are unable to determine the exact cause. The dollar loss is still being calculated. There’s no total amount at this time. The next phase will be the clean-up phase. It is the responsibility of the building owner to begin the process of clean-up, which we suspect will begin to happen in the next couple weeks."
