Crews over in Harborcreek have battled a smoky fire late into the afternoon.

According to a neighbor, it is believed that only one woman lives in this residence and she is safe, but this has yet to be confirmed by any authority.

Fire crews were at work to knock out the blaze and had the fire under control within a matter of time.

There has been no word on any injuries. Investigators are still currently looking into a cause for the fire as well. Currently crews are working to access areas of the house that may still have “hot spots.”

Update: According to the Assistant Fire Chief in Harborcreek Adam Bailey, the fire is now put out in the front of the building with major damage to the south west corner of the house.

No injuries have occurred from this event since everyone was out of the house before crews arrived on scene.

The structure is currently unable to be occupied at this time according to the assistant fire chief.

Fire crews as of 6 pm Saturday evening are still working in the exhausting heat.
