Cause of July fire remains a mystery
No evidence of arson found, official says
STERLING – The cause remains unknown for a fire that destroyed a house on First Avenue in July, but the case is still open, an official said Monday.
The state fire marshal’s office has found no indication that the fire was caused by arson, said Milly Santiago, the office’s spokeswoman.
Officials suspected the fire at the two-story duplex at 1012 First Ave. started on the exterior of the southeast side of the building, which sustained the most damage.
