Gibson Twp. Fire Cause Unknown

January 3, 2019

GIBSON TWP. — The cause of fire that destroyed the township municipal building will remain undetermined, a state investigator said Thursday. State police fire marshal Sandra Van Luvender said the damage from Wednesday’s fire was too extensive to determine a cause. The building stood on Route 92. The fire was reported at about 2 p.m. “There’s nothing to indicate it was suspicious,” Van Luvender said. The fire also destroyed heavy equipment inside the building’s garage. No one was injured. Gibson was the second Susquehanna County municipality in the last six months to lose its municipal building to fire. On July 31, a fire destroyed the Herrick Twp. Municipal Building. That cause also remains undetermined because the damage was too great, Van Luvender said. — BORYS KRAWCZENIUK
