Key points of the fire investigation:
• The fire was ignited and developed from the left side of the gap between a truck and trailer. In that area were a number of potential sources of ignition, and the investigation did not conclusively establish the primary cause of ignition.
• Due to loading conditions on the day of the accident, the fire did not spread to the other vehicles on the car deck.
• The crew succeeded in extinguishing the fire before blackout occurred and water supply for drenchers and fire hydrants was lost.
• The heat-retardant properties of the A-60 division between the vehicle deck and the passenger decks were impaired, as insulation fell from the deckhead when soaked by water during the firefighting.
