Investigation continuing in Clarksville mansion fire

March 15, 2004

The Howard County Fire Department is continuing to investigate the cause of a fire that destroyed a Clarksville mansion Friday, a fire spokesman said yesterday.

The fire caused an estimated $3 million in damage to the home in the 12700 block of Maryvale Court, owned by developer Frederick W. Kunkle Jr.

The semirural neighborhood has no fire hydrants, causing firefighters to use eight tankers to deliver water to fight the blaze at the home, which is estimated to be up to 12,000 square feet in size.
