ARSON RULED OUT IN EMERY INN BLAZE

The blaze that destroyed the Emery Park Inn in South Wales last week is not considered suspicious, an Erie County Sheriff's Department fire investigator said Monday.

"Officially, it's going to be undetermined but not suspicious," and the investigation will be suspended, Investigator Paul Czmara said.

The fire began Friday in a bedroom of one of two apartments in the building, which housed the former restaurant and tavern on Route 16.

One of five persons who lived there was singed by flames and was treated at the scene.
