“We know the cause of the fire is the vehicle into the building,” said the Livingston County sheriff in a statement to the press. “Beyond that, what caused it to ignite, we have to look at. Did the vehicle cause it, or something in the building that caught fire? Those are the things we’ll be working with fire coordinators on.”
The investigation continues, and the name of the driver or any other information has yet to be released. Anyone with information is asked to contact local authorities investigating the incident.
