Structure Fire Handled by Crews Last Night
Crews responded to a structure fire on MacFadden Drive in Lake MacLeod last night. Fire was running through the framing members of a chimney flue chase on the back side of the house. First alarm crews from Wexford, Adams Area, Marshall and Richland worked to open up the chimney chase from inside and outside the house to access the fire. The fire was contained to the chase. There was water damage to the first floor and basement and a moderate smoke condition throughout the first and sencond floors. Second alarm companies from Bradfordwoods, Cranberry, Ingomar, North Hampton, Peebles, and West Deer were brought in to relieve initial crews. There were no injuries, and the cause is under investigation by the Allegheny County Fire Marshal. Thanks to everyone for your assistance.
