WV Fire Department Burns Down Due to Electrical Fault

SISSONVILLE, WEST VIRGINIA – Investigators have ruled the blaze that destroyed the Sissonville Volunteer Fire Department’s  main station an accident.

Paul Gill, from the state Fire Marshal’s Office, says the blaze started with an electrical fault. But television station WCHS reports Sunday that Gill says investigators are still looking for the fire’s exact source.

The blaze destroyed the station Friday and the department has moved to temporary quarters.

Assistant Chief Tom Miller says the department’s insurance won’t cover all the damage. The policy covers up to $500,000, but Miller says there’s been at least $1.25 million in damage.
