    Post Tacoma, Washington warehouse fire

    Major warehouse fire visible for miles
    TACOMA (AP) - An intense two-alarm fire in a heating and cooling
    supply warehouse sent up smoky clouds visible for miles Wednesday
    night and disrupted traffic on a main south Tacoma thoroughfare.
    One firefighter suffered arm burns while another was dispatched
    to a hospital for evaluation of elevated pulse and blood pressure,
    said Deputy Chief Gary Schiesz.
    Some 50 firefighters fought the blaze at Thrifty Supply, first
    reported at 7:49 p.m. and contained by about 10 p.m.
    The building was still too hot late Wednesday night for
    investigators to enter to try to determine the cause of the fire,
    Schiesz said.
    South Tacoma Way was still closed in the area at 10:15 p.m.
    The building contained heating and air conditioning ducts,
    Schiesz said.

    Did the Tacoma Fire Inspectars ever find out the cause of the fire?
