Several area fire companies responded to a home at 115 Spruce Street in Fairview Township on Saturday, January.
Mountaintop Hose Co. No. 1 Chief Pete Kohl explains upon arriving at the scene at 6:47 a. m., heavy smoke was coming from the back of the home. Once inside, it was determined the smoke was coming from the attic. Firefighters pulled down all ceilings on the first and second floors of the bi-level in order to extinguish the fire, which Kohl notes was under control within 45 minutes.
Mountain Top Hose Company was joined by fire departments from Wright, Dorrance and Dennison townships in addition to assistance from Ashley Borough and Hanover Township.
