Multiple neighbors called in stated they saw smoke and flames from a mobile home. Chief 57-2 arrived and reported fire showing from the alpha side with exposure problems on the delta side. Chief 57-2 reported the home to be vacant and requested Pennsylvania State Police to the scene. Engine 57-4 arrived first and immediately stretched 2 handlines towards the home. Tanker 57 arrived and supplied Engine 57-4. Firefighters were quickly able to knock down a bulk of the fire. As more crews arrived they assisted with the mostly exterior operation. Once State Police arrived they talk to bystanders about the situation. The officer then arrested an intoxicated neighbor who allegedly set the mobile home on fire.

The fire was brought under control within a hour . After extensive overhaul crews began clearing the scene.
