LOS ANGELES (AP) — Authorities say they haven’t determined the cause of a $2 million fire at a Los Angeles storage facility despite an investigation by dozens of agents, investigators and fire experts.

The blaze erupted Oct. 25 at the Extra Space Storage facility in Venice. More than 400 firefighters fought the blaze for 14 hours. Eight firefighters were injured.

The Fire Department on Tuesday said an investigation of the fire scene that involved federal and local experts has ended, although the collected evidence must be analyzed and more interviews may be conducted.

A special national team of federal agents helped investigate the fire. The team works on large or high-profile fires, including those caused by the 1993 World Trade Center and Oklahoma City bombings.
