Officials: Lumber yard fire ruled accidental

Fire officials in Orange County have ruled the fire at Mid-State Lumber as accidental.



As News 12 previously reported, fire burned through nearly all of the 20,000 square-foot facility Thursday night and into Friday.



The fire destroyed an office complex, forklifts, trucks and more, but some stacks of wood weren't damaged because of the direction of the wind at the time of the fire.



Dozens of firefighters from 25 nearby fire departments battled the blaze for hours.



Some firefighters had to go back to the scene Friday evening to put out several hot spots.



Two firefighters suffered minor injuries at the scene.
