BOWIE FIRE INVESTIGATION CONTINUES
Prince George’s County Fire Investigators continue to investigate a Bowie house fire that occurred in mid June. Fire Investigators are being assisted this week by an Anne Arundel County Fire Accelerant Detection/Arson dog, agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) as well as officials from Nationwide Insurance Company. Officials from the County Department of Environmental Resources are also on-site to assist with examining the fire protection system. The investigation centers on a house fire that occurred at about 2:30 A.M., June 15, 2009, in the 100 Block of Stan Fey Drive.
The investigation is moving forward as a large crane and small bull dozer were brought on site to remove debris from the basement of the house to allow personnel an opportunity to continue their search for a cause and origin of this fire. The fire loss is estimated at $1.5 million.
Fire Investigators worked throughout the day on Monday, July 20, 2009 and will continue their work today.
