Press Release from City Manager Stephen Jellie re: Riverview Towers Fire Investigation

Ogdensburg city 1868

CAUSE OF THE FIRE AT RIVERVIEW TOWERS ON MARCH 8, 2022 REMAINS UNDETERMINED – INVESTIGATION SUSPENDED

The City of Ogdensburg Police and Fire Departments are indefinitely suspending the investigation of the origin and cause of the fire that occurred at Riverview Towers on March 8, 2022 due to the inability to interview Mr. Jay Meashaw, the occupant of the apartment where the fire originated.  Mr. Meashaw remains hospitalized from injuries sustained at the fire and is not able to speak with investigators.   Investigators from both entities, with support from the New York State Office of Fire Prevention and Control, completed a thorough review of the physical evidence at the fire scene, interviewed other building occupants and building staff which has allowed them to rule out many potential causes of the fire (i.e. electrical or mechanical malfunctions).   Until Mr. Meashaw is able to be interviewed, the cause of the fire will remain classified as undetermined and the area of origin being listed as Apartment #603.      

Until there is a change in the status of Mr. Meashaw, the City of Ogdensburg will have no further comment on this matter.
