A fire broke out at an abandoned house in Johnstown Wednesday morning. Fire crews responded to the blaze around 10:30 a.m. on the 100 block of Lunen Street in Moxham. Johnstown City Councilwoman Charlene Stanton tells us that many complaints were received from residents about the blighted property. "It does not surprise me that another vacant property is up in flames," says Stanton. "These vacant properties pose a danger to the community, especially residents who live beside them. Unsecured vacant properties are an attraction for criminal activity, safety danger for children who may want to explore inside of them or homeless seeking shelter." Stanton says she has submitted several Code Complaints over the years concerning the property. No injuries were reported.
