Fire cause uncovered

Investigators believe a frayed electrical cord likely caused a devestating apartment fire in Carmel.

Numerous fire departments were called to the blaze on yesterday on Route 2.

By the time it was out, the three story building was badly damaged and several members of a family were left without their home.

The fire chief tells us an electrical cord that ran to the clothes dryer became frayed where it came in contact with some duct work.

That caused a short circuit over time and sparked the fire.

Fire crews returned to the scene today to snuff out remaining hot spots and to help salvage some belongings.
