State and local fire officials said the cause of a blaze that did millions of dollars worth of damage to a home on Brundrett Avenue is unknown, but was likely electrical in nature.
Fire Chief Michael Mansfield and state Fire Marshal Peter Ostroskey announced Thursday that the cause of the July 8 fire at 8 Brundrett Ave. is undetermined, but an electrical problem in the basement ceiling most likely ignited the blaze.
The fire caused more than $3.5 million in damage to the large one-family home, officials said. Residents of the home were able to escape safely. There was one minor injury to a firefighter, officials said.
The fire appears to have started in a space in the basement ceiling above a bathroom where there was a combination vent and fan installed and other household wiring, officials said in Thursday's statement.
