It seems they think the cladding on the outside caught fire (or material behind the cladding) and the gap acted as a chimney, so once the fire had broken out of the first apartment it would have gone straight up the outside without needing to break into each apartment one-at-a-time like that. But as you say, no doubt more will become clear over time.
