The Treadmark Building near the MBTA’s Ashmont Station was torched by a six-alarm fire in June, but officials say it will be rebuilt.

Investigators determined that a faulty exhaust pipe connected to a generator in the basement caused flammable materials on the roof the catch fire.

The flames ripped through the wood-frame building, just days before the Boston Fire Department was slated to conduct a sprinkler test.

No injuries were reported.
