UPDATE: January 24, 2013

Firefighters have left the scene of yesterday's fire at Hanna Heating and Air on North West Street, after several hours of checking on hot spots.

According to investigators, there's too much damage inside to find what started the fire.

Findings will now be handed over to Hanna's insurance company, which could start its own investigation into the cause.

The fire caused an estimated one million dollars in damage.

The company is staying open despite the fire by receiving products from suppliers and working around the damage.
Other locations in Andover and Newton also remain open to customers.
