Stonington – Investigation continues into the cause and origin of a fire Friday that destroyed a home on the privately-owned Ram Island.

Stonington Police Detective Sgt. David Knowles said Thursday he is working with both the local and state fire marshal's offices on the investigation. The investigation involves talking to witnesses who first spotted the fire and sifting through debris of the destroyed home. He said another visit to the island, located off the coast of Mystic, is planned.

The home is owned by the Ragsdale family, but they were not home at the time of the fire.
