Local News

A fire has heavily damaged a two story house in the city of Erie on Monday afternoon.

Erie fire crews were called to the 400 block of East 28th Street around 2:30 p.m.

When crews arrived on the scene they found heavy smoke and fire on the second floor of the house.

The residents got out safely. However, the residents were checked out by Emergycare for smoke inhalation.

The deputy chief said that the unseasonably warm weather played a factor in battling this blaze.

“No injuries to any of the firefighters, however, they have been working very, very hard. Still kind of warm out for November and it was pretty warm up there,” said Fred Gillespie, Deputy Chief for the Erie Fire Department.

A fire investigator was called to the scene to determine a cause.
