A mobile home fire that killed a Philipstown man seven months ago remains under investigation, according to the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department.

Louis J. Weber Jr., 72, died in the early-morning fire on Nov. 4 in the Post Road Mobile Home Park off Route 9, just south of Route 301. An investigation of the blaze by the Putnam County Fire Investigation Team is ongoing, said Capt. Lisa Ortolano, a representative for the Sheriff’s Department, who said she could not provide any further details.

Weber was a veteran of the Marine Corps and a retired financial advisor.
