Investigation into Pike Lanes Bowling Alley fire continues

TROY, AL (WSFA)- State fire investigators continue to dig through the rubble of a popular Troy business trying to determine what caused a fire. The Pike Lanes Bowling Alley went up in flames around 4:00am Friday. The business was a total loss.

"Everything that just about could burn, did burn," State Fire Marshall Ed Paulk said. "Tremendous amount of damage to the structure itself, that causes us to have to have to look real deep to determine how the fire started."

It took 30 firefighters an hour and a half to put out the blaze.

There were no injuries as a result of the fire.

The State Fire Marshall's office says a fire as large as the one at Pike Lanes will take some time before a cause is found.

The building was built in 1989. The business owners had just finished upgrading the property with a paved parking lot and other improvements.
