CLEARFIELD COUNTY, Pa. (WTAJ) — State fire marshals are investigating a house fire that occurred Tuesday in Clearfield.
The blaze at a two story residence located on Park Avenue reportedly took ten minutes to extinguish after multiple fire crews arrived sometime after 11:15 a.m. The first floor received the most damage and is a total loss while the second floor only received smoke damage.
“Good smoke pushing through the second floor,” said Clearfield Fire Assistant Chief Brett Collins. “Crews of truck one (Clearfield) and engine five (Lawrence Twp.) had possible entrapment on the Second floor. So, the crew of truck one went to the second floor to search while engine five started making a good push on the fire.”
No one was reportedly inside the home at the time of the incident. Clearfield Fire Department, Lawrence Township Fire Company #1 & #2 and Curwensville Rescue Hose and Ladder all responded to the scene.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
