Erie firefighters are on the scene of a fire at 26th and German Streets. Fire inspector John Widomski says firefighters were pulled out from doing a search because of heavy smoke. Officials believed two were inside but one person has been accounted for. One person, possibly a child, is still unaccounted for. No word on whether or not there was anyone else in the building. Witnesses say firefighters arrived on scene quickly but were met with heavy smoke and fire spreading to several buildings. The Erie County Coroner has been called to the scene.
