A joint investigation team by fire and police officials on Sunday will continue its investigation into the cause of Saturday's fire which consumed the Ikea store in Netanya.

Investigators believe an electrical short circuit was the primary cause of the fire but have not ruled out arson.

Damage caused to the structure was estimated to be in the millions of shekels and officials said it would take more than a year-and-a-half for the store to be reopened.
