Kitchen fire in Tamaqua
KATHY KUNKEL/TIMES NEWS
A kitchen fire in Tamaqua on Wednesday afternoon left one woman temporarily homeless. All four fire companies responded to the 1:25 p.m. alarm, quickly knocking down the fire, containing damage to the kitchen area in an apartment at the Jewells building, 132 E. Broad St. Traffic was tied up for about 45 minutes along the busy highway, adding to the usual Wednesday traffic nightmares. The tenant, Jenny Yowre, was aided by the Tamaqua Salvation Army.
