Cause of fire at dwelling remains under investigation

April 19, 1996

The cause of Wednesday's two-alarm fire that destroyed a duplex apartment house in New Windsor remains under investigation, a spokesman for the state fire marshal's office said yesterday.

The fire in the 100 block of Main St. started on the first floor and spread rapidly to the second floor and roof, causing an estimated $130,000 in damage, Deputy Chief Bob Thomas, the spokesman, said.

Four residents were displaced from the wood structure owned by John T. Connell, he said.

Two volunteer firefighters from New Windsor Fire Company suffered minor injuries, he said. They were treated at Carroll County General Hospital and released.
