A month after a fire destroyed a central Whanganui building police are still unable to say what caused the blaze.

The vacant two-storey property at 255-257 Victoria Ave was gutted by fire on October 29. The building was demolished for safety reasons the day after the fire.

A police spokeswoman said investigations into the fire were ongoing and there was no update at this stage.

Police are also still investigating a fire that destroyed an empty house in Kaikokopu Rd in the early hours of November 13. Two neighbouring homes were threatened by the blaze and suffered some damage.
