LUFKIN, Texas (KTRE) - Fire caused so much damage at a resale shop in Lufkin, investigators may never know what caused it.

The damage inside Lulu’s Resale at 1014 N. Raguet St. in March was so widespread, investigators were not able to find what caused the initial spark, according to city spokesperson Jessica Pebsworth.
