The fire spread to a couple other units as well, leaving them all at least temporarily uninhabitable and causing an estimated $100,000 in property damage.

Schumann said fire investigators ruled the blaze unintentional, and said only the police could go further and find who was responsible for the fireworks.

Meanwhile, Schaumburg police Sgt. John Nebl said a police investigation would be launched only if the fire investigation had determined arson, which was not the case in this situation.
