Help in Cambridge Fire Case

Help in Cambridge Fire Case

The State Fire Marshal’s Office is asking for the public’s help involving a Cambridge fire that injured four firefighters Monday.

The vacant home in the 400 block of Steubenville Avenue was recently condemned. Spokesman Shane Cartmill says the cause of the fire remains undetermined. He says officials haven’t been able to rule out an accidental or intentional cause. The only utility the home had was electrical service.

Firefighters responded to the scene around four Monday morning and found the structure fully engulfed. Once the flames were extinguished, four firefighters entered the structure to look for hot spots and werre injured when a wall and floor partially collapsed. All four were treated and released with minor injuries.

If you noticed anything out of the ordinary around the area at the time of the fire, you’re asked to call the State Fire Marshal’s Office at 1-800-589-2728.
