Arson Ruled Out in Downtown Fire

Investigators still aren't sure how a fire started in Churchill's Pub last Friday, but they are sure it's not arson. "Arson was actually ruled out by me, the employees, an intruder, that was ruled out very quickly so that's not the case," said owner Andy Holmes.

Charred remains are all that's left of this well known British pub. And waiting is all that's left for Churchill's owners. They are waiting for fire investigators to finish up so they can get started on rebuilding their place of business. Fire investigators say the fire may have started somewhere in the kitchen. They're not sure of the exact cause of the blaze.
