Hindi parin matukoy ang tunay na sanhi ng sunog.

Sa poste gid naglupok ang kalayo, amo to nagdamo ang kalayo kay wala man sang may nagtawag bomber (Translation : Sa poste talaga nagmula ang apoy, ayon kumalat kasi di agad nakatawag ng bumbero),” saad ng isang saksi.

Mabilis na kumalat ang apoy dahil dikit-dikit ang bahay na gawa sa light materials.
