Victoria County fire investigators are continuing their investigation into a burned Bloomington mobile home where a search warrant was executed in April.
Investigators have determined the fire started beneath a back bedroom in a 1½-foot crawl space under the vacant single-wide mobile home at 63 San Antonio Ave., said Victoria County Fire Marshal Richard Castillo. According to Victoria County property records, the home is owned by Robert Beck.
But officials have not determined how the fire began and have, for the time being, ruled its cause as indeterminate, he said.
On April 10, Victoria County Sheriff’s Office investigators executed a search warrant there relating to a March shooting that injured a 21-year-old Bloomington woman and resulted in the arrests of three Bloomington residents.
Although fire investigators have exhausted their investigation of the physical evidence, they are continuing their investigation through interviews of nearby residents, Castillo said.
“At this point, we have not closed the case,” he said, adding detection devices found no hint of accelerant or fuel in the burned home.
But county fire investigators have concluded their investigation into the cause of a fire that destroyed a vacant Victoria County home that burned Monday night.
Castillo said a short-circuited wire in the attic caused the one-story home at 52 Hambleton Road to catch fire.
The home, which was undergoing renovations by its owner, Bob Hill, who lives behind it, had power at the time.
That blaze, Castillo said, has been ruled an accident.
Neither burned home was covered by insurance.
