Harrison Township, PA – Just before 4:00 P.M. on Saturday, March 13th, fire crews were dispatched to the intersection of River Avenue and Walnut Street for a report of smoke and flames coming from a house. Crews quickly arrived to find a vacant home heavily involved, with extension into a garage. An interior attack was attempted, but due to the amount of fire all crews were forced to abandon the building. About 30 minutes into the incident, smoke began coming from the eaves of an old Harrison Township Fire Station. Crews were able to quickly contain the extension into the fire station and remained on-scene for overhaul. No injuries were reported and the fire is now under investigation.
