Early Morning House Fire

Fire crews say fire likely started in basement of home.
ROARING SPRING, BLAIR COUNTY - Fire crews responded to an early-morning house fire Monday on the 1200 block of Bloomfield Road.

No injuries were reported although some dirt and small debris did fall onto a firefighter's face, causing that firefighter to take a break. The family living inside managed to get out of the house unharmed as well.

It started around 2 a.m. and fire crews say it likely started in the basement of the home near a wood-burning stove, although the cause of the fires is still under investigation.

"We had to remove some walls from the first floor because of the fire extension up the walls from the basement," said Roaring Spring fire chief Keith Pote. "There's a lot of damage but it will be able to be fixed."
