Investigators search for clues in Warwick lumber yard fire

Crews have begun to repair portions of a fence that was damaged during a fire at a Warwick lumber yard last week.



Chopper 12 captured the inferno at the Mid-State Lumber yard Thursday.



It took roughly 24 hours to get the flames under control after officials say a fire started in a building at the back of the property.



No one was inside at the time, and investigators are still determining the exact cause.



Warwick Supervisor Mike Sweeton says the town is doing what it can to help get it get back in business.



Sweeton says Mid-State Lumber has moved some of its workers to its New Jersey facility. So far, the company is declining to comment.
