NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Investigators with the North Charleston Fire Department have determined where the fire which ripped through an apartment complex on Delta Street Monday originated.

Fire department spokesperson Bianca Sancic said Friday investigators found the fire at the Delta Oaks Apartments began in the kitchen of apartment 212, but the specific cause of the fire is still undetermined.

Emergency crews responded to the apartments on the 5100 block of Delta Street just before 5 p.m. on Nov. 26.

Fire crews from North Charleston, Charleston, St. Andrews and St. John's responded to the two-story building fire. At one point authorities had shut down I-526 at Rivers Avenue because of the fire.

The fire destroyed 14 units of the apartment.

No one was injured. The American Red Cross is assisting nine families.

The North Charleston Fire Department would like to remind residents that the kitchen is the most likely location for a fire and that cooking is the most common cause of fire in the United States and in the city.
