 The source of the fire outbreak is still unknown.

When factnewonline crew visited the scene, it was in rubbles and no pin was picked out from the station. A once vibrant station appeared like a grave yard. The staff were all looking perplexed as they seem to yet comprehend what could have led to the inferno.
