Fire Still Under Investigation

UPDATE (Friday morning): The fire is being considered suspicious, and Agosti says they are still investigating.

City Fire Department Assistant Chief Rich Zmuda tells WESB that firefighters and four state police fire marshals -- three from PA and one from NY -- left the scene of the South Avenue fire at about 9 p.m. The cause is still under investigation and he expects PSP Cpl. Greg Agosti to issue a news release either later tonight or tomorrow. The New York fire marshal was called in because he has a fire-investigating dog whose services were needed.

More than 40 firefighters from the city, Bradford Township and Derrick City battled the blaze at 103 South Avenue, starting at about 7:45 a.m. Neighbors heard an explosion shortly before that. The fire spread to 105 South Avenue, where it melted the siding and did other damage.

No one was hurt.

We'll pass along more information when we get it.

I can not believe that so many people do not think about the consequences of their actions and who they may effect! This affected a good family, who has worked very hard on their home. I pray the lord shows them justice and that they are able to recover. May God bless keeping them in my thoughts and prayers during this time...
