October 31st, 2023 by WCBC Radio

The Maryland State Fire Marshal has determined the cause of a fire on Fayette Street on Friday was accidental in nature.  Smoke alarms in the residence at 681 Fayette alerted a neighbor to the fire in a second-floor bathroom.  Responding units took just five minutes to bring the fire under control. The preliminary cause was determined to be the failure of a six-plug electric strip in the bathroom.
