Officials were back on Thursday investigating the Stamford site of the former Rexmere hotel, an official said, which was demolished in a ferocious fire on Tuesday.
Director of Delaware County Emergency Services Steve Hood said insurance adjusters spent Thursday probing the area where the 50,000-square-foot building, now a heap of rubble, stood for more than a century.
The cause of the fire is still unknown, Hood said, and the investigation is ongoing. It will likely take several weeks, at least, he said, to determine the exact cause of the blaze.
Hood said the Department of Emergency Services will soon release an official statement with statistics regarding exactly how many fire departments helped battle the huge structure fire. Hood said the response from surrounding fire departments was tremendous.
Said Hood: “There were so many people out there helping.”
