Cause still undetermined in Adams Street fire
Mount Pleasant Fire Department fire investigators found no cause of ignition in a fire that permanently damaged a duplex structure last week, according to a department report.
Two families lived in the building at 204 N. Adams St. Two cats belonging to the occupants of the second-floor apartment perished in the flames. The investigation, led by Lt. Richard Beltinck, discovered the owner of the building, Linda Conklin, had no insurance.
Firefighters arrived to the scene four minutes after the alarm sounded.
“Upon arrival there was heavy fire coming from the southeast side and roof area of the second floor,” said Sgt. Gerard Vogel wrote in the report. “Half of the building and all of the roof on the second floor was damaged by flame, the other half of the second floor was damaged by smoke, heat and water.”
The first-floor apartment endured water damage, but belongings were salvaged by covering them with tarps.
