Nearly Half A Million In Fire Damage To Bishop Walsh Road Home

October 17th, 2015 by WCBC Radio

An early Friday fire that caused an estimated $450,000 damage to a Bishop Walsh Road house remains under investigation. No injuries were reported in the blaze at 1045 Bishop Walsh Rd., which broke out at about 1 a.m., according to the Allegany County 911 Center. Cumberland Fire Marshal Lt. Shannon Adams told the Cumberland Times News that the structural integrity of the building slowed the investigation somewhat on Friday. Fire units remained on the scene until about 10:45 a.m. Adams said the house was insured and the owner, who has now been identified as Dr Wonsock Shin, will be "staying in their other house in Virginia." In addition to Cumberland firefighters, Allegany County volunteer units from Bowling Green, LaVale and Cresaptown, and West Virginia units from Ridgeley and Wiley Ford responded. Roughly 40 firefighters battled the blaze. Corriganville, Shaft and Frostburg volunteer units were on standby at the Cumberland Fire Department.
