Orange Beach Condo Fire Ruled Accidental

Officials say they’ve figured out what started the massive fire at the Island Dunes condos.  The incident shook Orange Beach Tuesday morning.  City Fire Marshal Craig Stephenson says it was an accident.  It was an electrical problem.

The fire started in an outside light. Then it traveled up a wall and to the attic where it quickly spread.  In all…24 units were destroyed and at least five families were displaced.  Fire officials said it was a miracle no one was hurt.  Island Dunes predates mandates in the city code requiring sprinkler systems in multi-unit housing.
