Cause of Plastics Company Fire Undetermined

Investigators say they are unable to figure out what caused yesterday's fire at Southwest Plastics in Longview.  

Fire Marshals spent the morning taking aerial photos and rummaging through remains, but say a cause is undetermined.

This is the second time Southwest Plastics has burned to the ground, but the owner says he plans to rebuild again.  

"That one we know what caused that, but this one we're still scratching for answers," says John Thompson, owner of Southwest Plastics.

Thompson says he does not think his insurance will cover all of damage caused by yesterday's fire.
