Last we heard, members of the LA Fire Department were working with ATF agents and an adorable dog to determine the cause of the massive fire in downtown Los Angeles that incinerated two-thirds of an unpopular condo development. Now, investigators have released two videos featuring two men who they believe may have been witnesses.

Officials are not calling the men suspects, but they're hoping to talk to them about what they may have seen the morning of December 8, KTLA reports.

The first video shows a man dressed in black pants, a black jacket and a black and white baseball cap walking near the fence that surrounds the fire, and it seems like he might be looking to jump over it. Eventually, he's stopped by a firefighter who grabs him and pulls him away. Two firefighters appear to speak with him briefly.

The second video shows a man wearing a football jersey with the number "21" on the chest and carrying a dark-colored backpack. He appears to simply be walking down the street.

Anyone with information should call the LAFD Arson/Counter-Terrorism Section at (213) 893-9850.
