CLARKSBURG, W.Va. — A Tuesday night fire at an abandoned property in the Adamston area of Clarksburg is believed to be suspicious, Clarksburg Fire Chief Rick Scott said.

Scott said there were no utilities active at the house, which is located at the corner of Adams Avenue and North 25th Street in Adamston. The fire began around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday.

The cause of the fire is still unknown. Scott and Fire Inspector Chris McGee are investigating the abandoned home Wednesday morning.

The Adamston property was the site of a previous fire in April, Scott said.

“It was pretty much a total loss after the first fire, so we’re confident that it’s a total loss for sure,” he said.
