Johnstown House Fire

Fire crews responded to a house fire on the 1100 Block of Solomon Street in Johnstown Thursday morning. Assistant fire chief with the Johnstown Fire Department, Jim McCann, says the call for the fire came in around 3 a.m.

McCann says the homeowners and their two children were able to get out safely with their pets. The fire started on the second floor of the home and McCann says thankfully it didn’t spread, he says the family had closed the doors to the room which helped contain it.

The Richland Volunteer Fire Department also responded to help Johnstown firefighters put the fire out. McCann says while the room where the fire started is badly damaged that the rest of the home is in decent shape.

“At this time the investigation is ongoing as far as the cause we’ve notified fire marshal. He’ll be here shortly to do his portion of the investigation,” said McCann.

The Red Cross was called to the scene to assist the family.
