Marysville: Investigators searching for cause of house fire

The state fire marshal's office is working to determine the cause of a house fire at 27283 Kinney Pike in Claibourne Township at 3:30 a.m. April 12.

Northern Union County Fire Chief Randy Riffle said it took crews about a half-hour and 38,000 gallons of water to get the fire under control. He said the house is a total loss and the cause is undetermined. The house was being remodeled, so no one was home at the time.
