Five days after an explosion and series of small fires at MGP Ingredients, an investigation continues to pinpoint its cause.

"We don't yet know the cause," MGP Spokeswoman Jenell Loschke told the Atchinson Globe. "Our investigation is ongoing."

The blaze at MGP Ingredients in Atchison Friday lasted into the night after local fire departments responded following a reported explosion.

Local residents reported hearing a big boom about 8:15 p.m. and shortly after smoke blanketed this small Northeast Kansas community.

Firefighters returned about noon Saturday to attend to more flare ups. As of early Sunday morning all the small fires had been extinguished.
