Yes we understand that there was nobody in the building. However the fire department personnel are stating that there was nothing to indicate if it is an arson. I know they will be on the ground this morning making checks to see what they can ascertain from the remains. 

The cause of the fire has not yet been ascertained and the value of the damages is unknown. Police investigation continue.
