Now Benton County Fire District 1 has offered some information as to why the structure is still smoldering. According to the BCFD 1:

"There are about 12 acres worth of building and we can’t safely get to the areas that are smoldering. Could we use helicopters or airplanes to put water on it? Not really. There are contractual limitations that determine when air resources can be deployed, and this doesn’t meet those. Also, we want to preserve the point of the fire’s origin as much as possible for investigation purposes."

The Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms is going to be assisting in the investigation to determine, if possible, the exact cause of the blaze.
