Sussex Fire Damages Town's Historic Train Station

Insurance adjusters are assessing the damage from a fire outside the historic train station in Sussex which now houses a military museum and tourist information office.

Sussex Mayor Ralph Carr tells CHSJ News the fire was deliberately set which is very disturbing considering the target which is of historical significance.

The fire began in a garbage can located in a breezeway which connects two buildings and is used by people as protection from nasty weather.

Carr also tells us there was smoke damage to the inside of the museum and tourist office but it could have been alot worse. There is no damage figure yet with the insurance adjusters still to do an assessment.
