The cause of a house fire in Myersville on Thursday evening remained under investigation as of Friday afternoon, according to a deputy Frederick County fire marshal.
Firefighters were dispatched to the unit block of Main Street in Myersville shortly after 8 p.m. Thursday where they found heavy fire showing from the home, said Krystal Lowry, the deputy fire marshal who was later called in to conduct an investigation into the blaze.
While Lowry did not believe there were any injuries as a result of the fire, the house was an almost complete loss and two adult residents were displaced. The local chapter of the American Red Cross was requested to the scene to assist the displaced residents, but Lowry was not able to say what assistance, if any, was provided to the residents.
The cause, suspected origin and manner of the fire remained the subject of an open investigation as of Friday afternoon, but Lowry’s preliminary estimates indicated the damage done to the structure was likely in the range of $100,000.
