Local News

COOPER TOWNSHIP, Pa. (WTAJ) — A family of four is homeless after a fire early Friday morning in Clearfield County.

Multiple crews were called to the home on Old Route 53 in Cooper Township around 5:00 a.m.

Despite their efforts, they couldn’t save the home.

Two adults and two kids were home and were able to get out safely.

The Windburne Fire Chief tells us it started as a flue fire but spread into the walls and attic.

As crews were fighting the fire, they were also battling freezing temperatures.

“Freezes the handlines, the apparatus gets cold, freezes up,” Winburne Fire Chief, Harold David said. “We have a fire truck break down. We had a local company come down, assist them, get it unthawed, continue on with fire suppression.”

Winburne Fire Chief says the fire department is also accepting donations to help the family.

Here are the sizes provided for anyone who would like to help:
4-year-old boy: size 3T
11-year-old girl: 12 s/m, shoe size 4
Adult male: Large shirts, 30/32 pants, size 11 shoes
