TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - One year ago flames and smoke filled the Light House Mission on Wabash Avenue in Downtown Terre Haute.

A devastating fire that left more than 100 homeless people with-out a place to go.

Ruble is left behind at the location. Thankfully, the mission was able to move into Gary’s Place at 1201 S. 13th Street.

But one year later, questions still remain. Investigators determined the fire at the Light House Mission on Wabash Avenue was arson. But officials do not know who started the fire.

Light House Mission CEO, Reverend Fagg, told News 10 that it doesn’t really matter because the building is being sold to a developer out of Indianapolis.

This company will be turning the former Light House Mission into senior living apartments.

Right now they are waiting for the sale to take effect, which they believe will take place around the start of 2018.
