Cause of Shenandoah Junction fire not yet determined

May 23, 2012

SHENANDOAH JUNCTION, W.Va. — The cause of a fire in a home last week in Jefferson County has not been determined, but it appears to be accidental in nature, according to Assistant State Fire Marshal Patrick Barker.

The fire at 264 First St. in Shenandoah Junction apparently started on the second floor in the central hallway, Barker said.

The home is estimated to be about 100 years old, and the wiring will be examined further, he said.

Three volunteer firefighters injured while battling the fire on May 16 were treated at hospitals and released, officials said Wednesday.

Due to extensive fire damage on the second floor and roof, the home was estimated to be a total loss.

No residents were home at the time of the fire, and five dogs and two cats also survived the blaze, fire officials have said.
