Investigations are continuing into the fire at the Aparima Tavern last week.
Southland area fire investigator Paul Glanville said the cause of the fire was not yet known.
An electrical engineer was on site yesterday inspecting the wiring in the kitchen, where the fire started, he said.
Fire crews from across Southland were called to Riverton after the tavern caught fire late on Thursday afternoon.
