Investigators have found no signs of foul play or arson in a fire at a 9/11 memorial complex in Pennsylvania which destroyed a U.S. flag that flew over the U.S. Capitol on Sept. 11, 2001, authorities said on Sunday.
Also lost in Friday afternoon’s blaze were personal items belonging to the passengers and crew members who were on United Airlines Flight 93 when it crashed as one of four hijackings by al Qaeda militants on Sept. 11, 2001.
National Park Service spokesman Mike Litterst said in a statement that an investigation by members of the agency and the Pennsylvania State Police is ongoing.
“Definitive findings, including the cause of the fire, are not expected for a matter of weeks,” he said.
