HARRISONBURG, Va. (WFXR) — The Harrisonburg Fire Marshal’s Office said Wednesday there is no evidence a natural gas explosion at a business in the city was an intentional act. The update comes on the same day new video was released showing the explosion on surveillance video from a nearby business.
The fire happened around 9 a.m. Saturday at a shopping center on South Main Street. Five people were injured in the incident.
The statement from the Harrisonburg Fire Marshal’s office said its investigation is complete and the building on Miller Circle would be turned over to the owner soon. The street will remain closed as cleanup continues.
Damage from the explosion and fire was so extensive, the office said, that it cannot provide more information on the origin of the fire or the ignition point.
The Fire Marshal’s Office also posted video of the explosion. You can watch the video above.
