Cause of warehouse fire identified

We now know what caused that massive fire at the BBL construction warehouse in Colonie.

Colonie police now tell us that the fire was caused by a “cutting in a maintenace area” that ignited flammable items like propane and gasoline which led to the fire.

As flames ripped through a metal door, an employee was hurt.
