According to Brighton Area Fire Authority Fire Marshal Rick Boisvert, it was a smoldering fire in the attic blown-in insulation.

“It burned through 9 trusses that were buried in the insulation and dropped the drywall and gave the fire the air it needed,” said Boisvert.  “It is still under investigation but likely caused by the radiant tube heater exhaust in the ceiling being in contact with the newly blown-in insulation.”
