Fire at historic Georgetown train station

Fire investigators are trying to determine what sparked a blaze at the historic Georgetown train station over the weekend.
 The structure, built around 1868, suffered significant damage during the fire on Saturday afternoon.  

The station’s website (georgetowntrainstation.org) says thousands visit the historic site every year. A note on the site says the facility is now closed until further notice.
