Breitbach's fire cause may take years


BALLTOWN (KWWL) -- It could take years to determine what caused a second devastating fire at a famous Balltown restaurant.

Insurance investigators finished collecting evidence in the rubble of Breitbach's restaurant in Balltown. That evidence now goes to a lab for more testing. In an interview with our coverage partner, Dubuque's Telegraph Herald newspaper, the lead investigator determining a cause of the october 24th fire could take years. The company is still investigating the first fire at Breitbach's, which happened last Christmas. Breitbach's owner told us earlier this year the investigation could determine if he will rebuild the restaurant again.
