Joplin firefighters don’t know yet what caused a wholesale paint store to blow up. The explosion blew the roof off the building and blew out two of the walls of the two-story building. Nobody was inside at the time. The fire chief says the cause might never be pinpointed because of the intensity of the fire, which was fueled by paint, solvents, and other chemicals.
