Investigators from the Office of the State Fire Marshal and the Maryland Transportation Authority spent Monday afternoon at the Bay Bridge, attempting to zero in on the cause of a Sunday evening fire.
The fire began around 6 p.m. Sunday in a construction area under the westbound span of the bridge according to Maryland Transportation Authority Police.
Bruce Bouch with the Fire Marshal's office says investigators don't believe there was any criminal activity involved, but they have not yet determined the cause. He said because of a number of factors at play it's possible the cause may remain undetermined.
Sunday's fire closed down lanes of travel and tied up traffic for hours. An inspector from the Maryland Transportation Authority cleared the span for travel just before 8 p.m.. Agency spokesman John Sales says there was no structural damage to the bridge. He indicated the fire began in an area where paint was being stored.
