Nothing but a pile of smoldering ashes remained after an early morning fire in a townhouse in progress at Granite Ridge development in Kennett Township on Monday. The development, a work in progress, contains townhouses built at the top of a hill just off Rosedale Road on McFarlan. One workman at the job said there was no electricity connected the structure. He speculated, “Someone just dumped something on it and set it on fire.”
