-New information is released on the cause of the deadly fire in Abbotsford.
According to WQOW, the fire at the Abby Theater, in early March, claimed the life of a volunteer firefighter. After an intense investigation, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives would only say the fire started in the lobby, and was accidental. The investigation now shows the cause was electrical in nature.
A spokesman for the ATF says he cannot comment on the specific malfunction, but did say there was no negligence involved.
