Cedar Point blaze cause undetermined

From the Sandusky Register


Sandusky’s fire marshal said the cause of July’s Cedar Point fire may remain undetermined, though he suspects an electrical problem sparked the blaze.

Fire marshal Rudy Ruiz said unless he’s 100 percent certain, he’ll leave the case open until new information or evidence crops up.

The July 6 fire at a service building at Cedar Point caused extensive damage.

Ruiz said there was a storage area above a ballast, a mechanism used to control electrical current. The fire appeared to have started there.

“Ballasts have a tendency to get hot and it could have heated up the storage area,”Ruiz said.
