MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Three weeks after a massive fire ripped through piles of pallets at a business on Montgomery's northside, an investigation hasn't produced an answer to the cause.

Montgomery Fire Department investigators are listing the cause of the fire at American Pallets as "undetermined".

Dozens of firefighters fought the blaze on, aptly named, Furnace Street, struggling against weather conditions, including wind gusts of more than 20 mph, and low humidity. Water pressure issues also compounded their efforts.

Two people were injured including a man who was treated for non-life threatening burns at the scene. A firefighter was also treated for a heat-related injury.
