ASHFORD, Conn. (WTIC Radio)_ Connecticut State Police investigators do not believe the fire at Paul Newman's Hole in the Wall Gang Camp was arson.

State Police on Monday said the cause of the fire is undetermined because the damage is so intense.

Officials could find no indication the fire was set intentionally.

Founded by Paul Newman and opened in 1988, the camp helps seriously ill children.

The camp plans to rebuild with a larger single-level complex. The main building and several smaller, attached facilities were totally lost in the blaze on February 12.
