Cause of Mount Airy fire under investigation

Firefighters worked throughout the day Friday and may work through the weekend to clear debris and steel beams at 1010 S. Main St. in Mount Airy after a two-alarm fire destroyed much of the commercial building.

The origin and cause of the fire likely can’t be determined until that work is done, according to Senior Deputy State Fire Marshal Bruce Bouch.

No injuries were reported in the blaze, which began around 2 p.m. Thursday at the former site of the Warfield Chevrolet dealership and Dennis Kitchens and Bath.

The Office of the State Fire Marshal is conducting a joint investigation with the Frederick County fire marshal’s office.
