Right now, the fire chief says investigators are interviewing people, including those who are homeless, who have a history of finding a warm place to stay inside the building. There were no utilities in a portion of the hotel so investigators says a person most likely started the fire. As of Thursday night, though, they're still not sure if it was arson. "We do believe however with following some of the leads that we have right now we will be able to come up with some information on how exactly the fire started," says Hot Springs Fire Chief Ed David. According to the city of Hot Springs, clean-up can't get started until an environmental assessment is complete. The Majestic was one of two hotels in less than a week that went up in flames.
