The cause of the fire remains a mystery. Investigators believe the fire started with styrofoam and that it was "criminal" in nature, involving either negligence or arson, said Luciene Oliveira, an official at the Mato Grosso state judicial civil police. Mendes Junior executives believe the fire was lit by a disgruntled construction worker who has since left the site, a source with knowledge of the investigation told Reuters. Oliveira declined comment on that possibility, but said police were looking for a witness who, they believed, has fled to the interior of the state. The stadium is not the only aspect of Cuiaba's preparations that has experienced problems. A new $700 million light rail system that was supposed to be ready for the World Cup now isn't scheduled to be finished until December, five months after the tournament ends, Guimaraes said. <br>For the original version including any supplementary images or video, visit http://news.yahoo.com/exclusive-brazil-world-cup-stadium-structurally-damaged-fire-002352368--sector.html
