BRYAN -- Investigators are still trying to figure out what started a fire that destroyed 14 apartment units in Bryan, Tuesday afternoon.

The fire began in the Oakwood Townhomes then spread to the Old Oaks condos next door.

The fire department and insurance company investigators are still digging through debris, looking for answers.

But Deputy Fire Marshall, Fred Taylor, tells Fox 28 they're 99-percent sure they know what caused the fire.

"We're looking at a washer/dryer combination in one of the units so right now we are working with the insurance investigators to assist them how we can."

They hope to have the investigation wrapped up by tomorrow so the tenants can start picking up the pieces of what's left and move on.
