— Final determination of the cause of the fire that destroyed a string of Woodlawn Avenue row houses is at least a week away, according to Saratoga Springs Police Lt. John Catone.

Catone said investigators are still interviewing witnesses, some for a second time, and reviewing pictures and videos taken by neighbors and authorities. Investigators are also still going through the remains of the structure on Woodlawn Avenue, which is surrounded by police tape.

Catone stressed that any media reports that the fire originated from the closet of a basement apartment are not correct.
