Family 'Relieved' After Bodies Recovered From Annapolis Fire

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Relatives of a family believed to have died in a mansion fire say they are relieved that all six bodies have been recovered from the rubble.

Family members of Don and Sandra Pyle, who relatives say were inside an Annapolis-area mansion when it burned to the ground on Jan. 19, thanked investigators in a statement released Tuesday, and said they are "relieved that our loved ones have been recovered."

Investigators recovered the last of six bodies believed to have been in the rubble on Monday, one week after the blaze destroyed the 16,000-square-foot waterfront mansion.

Anne Arundel Fire Department spokesman Capt. Russ Davies says that now that all those dead are believed to be accounted for, investigators can focus on the fire's cause.

    Devastating Fire Destroyed the Old Wicomico Youth & Civic Center 40 Years Ago Tuesday

    40 years ago Tuesday the old Wicomico Youth and Civic Center was destroyed by one of the county’s most devastating fires.

    On June 27, 1977, a floor buffer sparked a highly flammable sealant being applied and, in an instant, the community’s cherished center shot up in flames, dark smoke billowing that could be seen as far south as Princess Anne and as far north as Laurel, Del.
