Columbus firefighters have ruled the cause of a Monday fire that destroyed an estimated $250,000 in Faurecia parts stored outside the company's Gladstone Avenue plant as "undetermined."
Fire investigators did not have enough evidence to find a determining factor for the start of the fire, said Capt. Mike Wilson, spokesman for the Columbus Fire Department.
The fire started about 10:16 a.m. in tall stacks of plastic bins that were stored in an outdoor staging area at the Faurecia Emission Controls Technologies plant, Wilson said. Metal parts were stored in each of the plastic bins.
