EUPORA, Miss. (WTVA) -- The State Fire Marshal's office is continuing to review evidence collected from the scene of a fire in downtown Eupora over the weekend.

The fire Saturday night damaged four buildings, three heavily.

One of the businesses affected was able to reopen earlier this week.

Several fire departments responded to the fire around 5 p.m. Saturday night and battled the blaze for several hours before putting it out.

Authorities speculate the fire started in the attic of one of the buildings.

The buildings are among the oldest in the city and officials say the fire spread quickly.

Investigators dug through the damage earlier this week looking for clues, but so far have not released a cause for the fire.
