The fire that destroyed nine businesses and a church in Newburgh on Saturday is still under investigation Sunday night. 

Insurance adjusters continued to assess the damage as business owners returned to salvage what they could from the rubble.

Newburgh Assistant Fire Chief Chad Bennett says the insurance company will turn over their reports to the state fire marshal's office before an official cause can be determined. Officials say they don't suspect arson.

One of those business destroyed in the Sharon Place fire says they don't have plans to reopen in Newburgh, at least not before the holidays. 

Egan's Framing says they lost several pieces of merchandise that they were framing for customers, as well as their own photographs on the walls. 

Owner Jeanne Egan was most worried about her records she kept in a filing crate. She said she was able to go back and salvage what was left Sunday afternoon, but she doesn't have plans to reopen in the area anytime soon.

"I was really upset because like I said, I was really excited about Small Business Saturday and what kind of customers we planned on getting. We had planned on some customers coming in and picking up some things and I was really devastated," Egan said.

Right now, Egan says they plan on operating out of their main store in Wadesville.
