Arson has been ruled out as the cause of Saturday's massive 10-alarm fire in a Cambridge neighborhood, but investigators are still considering "potential heat sources."
The State Fire Marshal's office says the fire started at or near 35 Berkshire St. before destroying or damaging 16 homes and buildings, including a former church that had been convetered into condos, and destroying several vehicles parked along the street. So far, at least two homes considered too dangerous to be left standing have been demolished.
Officials say 125 people lost their homes in the blaze.
Earlier, a fire official told us investigators have finished examining forensic evidence at the scene, but continue to gather information and interviews as part of the ongoing investigation, which could take weeks to complete.
Governor Charlie Baker is expected to visit the devastation on Monday.
Cambridge's mayor is recommending those who would like to help displaced residents to make a donation to the Mayor's Relief Fund at Cambridge City Hall. Donations can also be made online through the mayor's GoFundMe page.
