BELLEFONTE, CENTRE COUNTY- The Bellefonte Fire Chief and State Police Fire Marshall were on the scene where a huge fire spread through two buildings on High Street in Bellefonte.
They're still looking for a cause, but in the meantime, many in Bellefonte still can't believe all the destruction.
Two buildings were destroyed and for those who called one of the buildings home, things won't be the same for quite a while.
"I got home from work and was watching a movie when I heard smoke detectors," said tenant Kris Bloom. "I sat and listened to see if they'd turn off, but then people started knocking on the doors."
Everyone in the building escaped without injuries, but as the fire spread, building owner John Dann's heart sank.
"My whole life's here," he said. "For 34 years I lived here, my kids, they worked here, it was rough to see it go up in smoke like that."
Dann is trying to maintain a sense of optimism.
"If it's possible, I hope I can get it rebuilt," Dann said. "That's my main priority."
His tenants feel his pain.
"I lived here probably five or six years, I know John Dann and he's a good guy," said tenant Kris Bloom. "I'm going to miss it."
