Fire destroys Elk Co. home

Crews spend hours working to put out flames

By: Marc Stempka

JAY TOWNSHIP, Pa. Firefighters and emergency personnel spent hours working to put out a fire at a home in Elk County late Wednesday night and into Thursday morning.

Officials with the Jay Township fire department said the fire started at about 11:30 p.m. Wednesday at a home in the 1100 block of River Road, just outside of Weedville.

Officials said two people lived inside the home and were able to get out of the structure before the flames spread throughout the house.

Crews worked to contain and put out the fire until around 6 a.m. Thursday. Officials said the complex structure of the home made the firefight difficult.

One firefighter suffered a non-life threatening injury while at the scene, but officials did not specify the nature of the injury.

Officials said the American Red Cross was assisting the two people who lived in the home and that a state police fire marshal was investigating the cause of the fire.
