There’s just too much damage to ever determine the cause.
Three buildings, which included Colonel’s restaurant, the Wingspread Gallery and several apartments, were all destroyed early Tuesday morning.
Colonel’s owners, Stephanie and Mark Reece, say they’re determined to rebuild.
The fire left twenty-three people homeless, about half of them are russian students working in Bar Harbor for the summer.
They lost everything, including their passports.
A member of the local ambulance service was injured when a propane tank exploded during the fire, too.
