The cause of last month’s catastrophic fire along Main Street in Sag Harbor is unlikely to ever be determined, fire officials said.

Compass and Brown Harris Stevens’ offices in Sag Harbor, as well as a historic cinema, were destroyed in a massive fire that tore through Main Street on Dec. 16. East Hampton Chief Fire Marshal David Browne told the New York Post that, because two buildings were razed, is impossible to really know the cause.

“A lot of what was there was gone,” he told the Post. “There’s not much we can really find.”

East Hampton Fire Marshal Tom Baker said his decision to cut power in the area immediately afte上海千花网

out cigarettes as the cause of the fire, despite some reports cigarette butts were found nearby.

“We found cigarette butts everywhere 上海千花网龙凤论坛

in Sag Harbor,” he said. “We can’t pinpoint the fire to a cigarette and we found burning in places where a cigarette couldn’t have gotten.”

After the blaze, Suffolk County fire investigators ruled out criminality, saying there was “nothing suspicious” about it. The investigation is now over, according to Baker, “unless someone comes forward with information.” [NYP] Miriam Hall
