Officials Determine Cause of Candor Highway Department Fire

Tioga County fire investigators have determined the cause of Monday's fire at the Candor Highway Department building.

Officials say that electrical wires in one of the dump trucks had a short and started the fire. No one was injured in the blaze, but the truck bay area did suffer extensive damages.

Investigators say the service area and offices were not damaged because of a fire wall, but four 10-wheeler dump trucks and a front end loader were lost in the blaze.
