RE: Miller & Miller Funeral Home Fire
Fire Investigator Steve Jordan has not finished his preliminary report and says it could be up to a week but stated the fire is still “under investigation”. Jordan spent most of Sunday morning and early afternoon examining the building’s fire damage and its contents from the Saturday night blaze.
Due to public safety concerns, an emergency raze order was requested from Building Commissioner Ben Miller and the severely damaged structure was torn down Sunday afternoon.
Nine EFD fire companies, including over 30 Firefighters, responded to the commercial blaze that was dispatched at 10:22 PM late Saturday night. Firefighters were on-scene for more than 6 hours.
