The Forensic Police are still investigating to find the cause of the fire. The money seen in the photo below was recovered from donation pots in the building. Monks were reportedly not present in the building at the time of the blaze and were participating in community activities nearby.  The monks will be moved to temporary housing according to the Abbott.
