Firefighters treated after blaze near Horseshoe Curve

Local News

Firefighters were treated by medical crews after a large brush fire near Horseshoe Curve in Altoona Saturday.

That fire first broke out alongside Veterans Memorial Highway at noon and scorched part of the hillside on the right as you drive toward Horseshoe Curve.
It took several crews more than 4 hours to get those flames under control.

We’re told as many as 5 firefighters had to be treated for heat exhaustion, but no serious injuries have been reported. Power was out for just over 200 people in Blair County.

No word yet on what sparked that blaze.
