CLARKS HILL -

Fire investigators cannot find the cause of a blaze at a western Indiana company that produces wooden pallets.

Indiana Department of Homeland Security spokesman Garrett Walton told The Journal & Courier for a story Thursday that the cause and the origin of the Saturday fire at Industrial Pallet Corp. have been listed as undetermined. The state agency includes the state fire marshal's office.

The fire in Clarks Hill drew responses from 22 fire departments. Water was trucked in from Lafayette, about 15 miles away, and other sources after the firefighting efforts emptied the Clarks Hill water tower.

No injuries were reported.
