State investigating cause of Sunday home fire

An exhausted Fire Chief Steve Marfongella (left), along with battalion chief Thomas Dyal (center, standing), Mike Whitehead and Bubba Dyal discuss bringing water to the “hot spots” remaining after a fire destroyed a double wide mobile home on SR 125 south of Mud Lake Rd. the morning of September 22.

Everyone safely evacuated the structure belonging to Richard Wisner after the blaze was discovered about 6 o’clock on that Sunday morning, and the last fire unit left about 3 pm when a state fire marshal completed an investigation.

As of Tuesday this week, the cause was still undetermined, and Chief Marfongella placed structure and content damage at $125,000. Firefighters from Glen St. Mary and South Macclenny set up a large “dump tank” on 125 to fill with water from tankers ferried over from Glen.
