Cause of Egg Harbor fire still unknown

Egg Harbor Fire Department Chief Steve Schopf says he is still a few days away from determining an exact cause of the fire at Schartner’s Farm Market Wednesday night. Crews fought the fire for several hours before eventually putting it out, but not before completely destroying an old storage barn and causing heat damage on some other nearby structures. Schopf says fighting the blaze was similar to other large scale efforts like the fire at Shipwrecked in 2017, but says its location in the yard at Schartner’s Farm Market is what made this time different.

After talking to an insurance claims adjuster and other eyewitnesses on Thursday, Schopf says they should be able to determine the exact cause of the fire in the next couple days.
