The cause of the Sept. 25 fire in the 700 block of Front Street in Georgetown has still not been released and no time frame has been given on when investigators will make their findings public.
Thom Berry, spokesman for the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division, told the Georgetown Times Tuesday the investigation “is still open and ongoing.”
No other details were released.
Georgetown Fire Chief Joey Tanner said he “is surprised” the report has not been released. He said SLED asked for and received copies of reports from his department and the Georgetown Police Department a couple of weeks ago. He said that is usually the last request that is made before a SLED investigation is complete.
“They do have a lot of processes they have to go through,” Tanner said.
