Four Fatal Weekend Fires

Four fatal house fires happened over the weekend.

A fire in Allegany on Sunday claimed the life one man.

No other details have been released. The Cattaraugus County Sheriff’s Office is investigating. One man died in an overnight blaze in Warren County.

The fire started at just before midnight in Pittsfield. Firefighters were on the scene until 7:15 this morning. Two other people were able to escape the house uninjured.

A St. Marys man died and his wife was severely burned in a Saturday morning fire on Brussells Street in St. Marys.

77-year-old James Robbins was not able to get out of the house and died of smoke inhalation. 69-year-old Joan Robbins was flown to UPMC Mercy in Pittsburgh for treatment of severe burns and smoke inhalation.

The house was destroyed. The fire remains under investigation.

Careless smoking is believed to be the cause of a fire that killed a Tionesta woman on Saturday.

50-year-old Diana Clark was rescued from her burning apartment and resuscitated. She was then flown to a Pittsburgh hospital, where she later died.
