Investigation continues into shopping center fire

Still no word on what sparked a fire that burned down an entire shopping center.

Investigators were on the scene Tuesday at the Russell Shopping Center in Elkhorn City in Pike County, which caught fire Christmas Eve.

It housed a pawn shop, beauty shop, Appalachian Wireless store, a Mexican restaurant and some storage areas.

The owner said the center had not had power for several days and says some downed trees caused power lines to fall onto the roof, which he speculates may have sparked the fire.
