The cause of a massive three-alarm fire in west Mobile on Sunday (April 23) afternoon is still unsolved and fire investigators are asking for the public's help in figuring out what started the blaze.
Mobile Fire-Rescue Department Spokesman Steve Huffman said that they are specifically seeking video or photos of the early stages of the fire.
The fire started in buildings 8 and 9 at about 4:38 p.m. on Sunday at the Timber Ridge Apartments located at 6700 Wall Street. It quickly shot up to three-alarms, but responding firefighters were able to rescue all of the occupants and most of their pets.
