TOLEDO (WTOL) - Fire investigators are hoping to get more answers as to what happened early Saturday morning when a Toledo apartment complex went up in flames.

Eight buildings at the Hunter's Ridge apartments in south Toledo were destroyed.

Investigators will conduct more in-depth interviews with witnesses on Tuesday, July 8.

They will also be trying to track down the people who lived in the burned buildings to talk to them about what they may have seen. Fire investigators say they have ruled out everything except fireworks as the cause of the blaze. They say finding the culprit may be very difficult.

Fire Chief Mike Wolever says four to five different kinds of fireworks were discovered at the scene.

Investigators have already questioned several witnesses.
