Eight homes damaged in Mahanoy City fire
A three-alarm fire in Mahanoy City involved eight homes in the seven hundred block of East Pine street Saturday night.
Fire companies from three counties, Schuylkill, Carbon and Luzerne were on scene battling the blaze. The fire broke out just after 8 p.m. to the rear of 729 and 731 East Pine Street.’
Due to the close proximity of the homes the flames quickly spread.
In that part of the community there are no alleys separating the block to the rear of the homes thus firefighters had a difficult time reaching and battling the blaze.
No injuries were reported in the incident.
