HOLLIDAYSBURG, BLAIR COUNTY - The community of Hollidaysburg is recovering after a devastating fire.

Just over a month ago, a massive fire left several people homeless and impacted businesses on Allegheny Street.

Dave Musselman's barbershop used to sit on the corner of Allegheny and Front Street. It was destroyed by the fire and demolition crews brought down what was left.

Now he's opened a new shop in the Mielnik's Plaza in Frankstown Township.

And the Front Street Deli right next to the fire re-opened. Tenna Rutter says they are getting their customers back and thanked the communities and firefighters.
Allegheny Street has reopened and there's an empty lot where the buildings used to stand.

Hollidaysburg Mayor John Stultz says the borough is working with the property owner and he also thanked everyone for their help.

And Mussleman hopes everyone's getting the same support he is. His barber shop is open Tuesday through Friday nine to five.

And the Front Street Deli is open for lunch and dinner seven days a week.
