SOUTH HARWICH, Mass. — Surveying the charred rubble that once was the 20-unit "port building" of the Stone Horse Motel, Fire Chief Norman Clarke, Jr., knows that it could've been much worse.
"We could've had three or four structures involved with this," he said, shaking his head. No one was injured. As it was, the fire that lit up the South Harwich sky early Sunday morning was the largest blaze the chief has seen in at least two decades. And investigators say its origin is suspicious.
