The cause of a fire on 8th Street in Troy on Monday may never be known.

A man who was living there told NewsChannel 13 earlier this week that the fire started when his wife plugged a cell phone to charge, and it exploded.

NewsChannel 13 has been checking with the fire department all week.

Fire Chief Eric McMahon said the official cause is undetermined.

He says while the cell phone could not be ruled out as the actual cause, there may have been other electrical issues.

One woman who was trapped inside the bedroom on the second floor was rescued. She is now out of the hospital.
