Early-Morning Fire Damages Several Buildings

Empty structures were supposed to be demolished years ago.

ALTOONA - An early-morning fire damaged several empty buildings.

It happened on 8th Street and Chestnut Avenue in Altoona around 2 a.m. Friday.

Firefighters had the flames under control by 3 a.m.

The buildings were supposed to be torn down a few years ago. Development plans never materialized, so they remained vacant.

The buildings were not sealed at the time of the fire.

No word yet on a cause.
