Two dis­placed in West Side fire

The Times-Tribune - - Local / Nation -

Two city res­i­dents were dis­placed when an early Satur­day fire heav­ily dam­aged their home.

Scran­ton fire­fight­ers re­sponded to a 6:20 a.m. call to 526 N. Hyde Park Ave. and saw heavy smoke as they pulled up, along with heavy fire in the rear of the two-story, sin­gle fam­ily home, Act­ing As­sis­tant Fire Chief Al Tay­lor said.

The fire was un­der con­trol in about an hour, he es­ti­mated.

There were no re­ports of in­juries in the blaze, but the house was left with heavy dam­age to the struc­ture, in­clud­ing fire, smoke and wa­ter dam­age. The home is not cur­rently hab­it­able, but the res­i­dents were ex­pected to stay with fam­ily, Tay­lor said.

The cause of the fire had not yet been de­ter­mined. —KYLE WIND
