Linglestown Gazette: Linglestown home burns

Linglestown home burns

A fire early this morning on the 6200 block of Catherine Street in Linglestown has totally destroyed a home, according to Gazette contributor Kim Mumper.

The owners of the home were at work, but their son was sleeping in the basement. He got out of the house unharmed, but the family's cat may have perished in the blaze.

A neighbor, who called 911, heard a popping sound and then spotted flames shooting from a window.

I briefly visited the scene during the 8 am hour and fire crews from Linglestown, Paxtonia, Colonial Park and Susquehanna, Swatara and West Hanover townships were in the closing stages of their operations. Smoke was still coming out of the house.

For more details, check out a news brief filed by The Patriot-News.
