LOWER HEIDELBERG TWP., Pa. -

The remnants of an apartment building under construction in Berks County continued to burn Wednesday morning, more than 24 hours after a fire reduced the structure to rubble.

Small flames and smoke could be seen rising from the snow-covered ashes at the Legacy at Papermill apartment complex -- an over-55 community -- in Lower Heidelberg Township.

The initial fire broke out early Tuesday morning and quickly went to three alarms as flames engulfed the wooden frame of the structure, which was being constructed next to an already-occupied building.

No one was injured.

Investigators returned to the scene Wednesday in search for what sparked the inferno. A state police fire marshal is assisting in the probe.

Fire officials said the blaze caused about estimated $2 million in damage. The owner of the property told 69 News he will rebuild.
