Although El Paso County Sheriff's Lt. Jeff Kramer said he was "not at liberty" to reveal the precise point of origin, coordinates posted on a federal fire-management website and dispatch recordings of conversations between firefighters indicate the fire started on a ridge along the popular Waldo Canyon hiking trail.
On Thursday, investigators said they had not determined how the fire began.
The fire was officially reported at about noon June 23 and went on to burn 18,247 acres, destroy 347 houses and kill Barbara
Everett, 73, and William Everett, 74, in their home in the Mountain Shadows neighborhood.
