“They made their determination that it was not criminal,” Clallam Fire District No. 1 Chief Phil Arbeiter told the Peninsula Daily News this morning.
The investigators sifted through the rubble Thursday.
Arbeiter said the fire began in an electrical panel in the IOOF hall, which housed the Rainforest Art Center on the second floor.
Two storefronts, including a store specializing in Latin American items, faced Forks' main street on the ground floor.
The building, owned by the city of Forks, was insured for $3.7 million.
