Minor Muncy Creek fire displaces, injures none

Firefighters responded to a minor structure fire in Muncy Creek Township Saturday afternoon.

The fire was a minor incident that yielded no injuries, and it was able to be knocked down within 20 minutes, according to Chad Tobias, a duty officer with the Muncy Area Volunteer Fire Co.

The three adults who lived at the home, on the 3300 block of Route 442, had homeowners insurance and were not displaced as a result of the fire, Tobias said.

The fire marshal was not called to the scene and firefighters believe the cause was accidental, although it is still under investigation, according to Tobias.

While Muncy Area Volunteer Fire Co. handled the scene, it received help from Hughesville Volunteer Fire Department, Picture Rock Volunteer Fire Company and Clinton Township Volunteer Fire Department. A unit from the Warrior Run Fire Department crossed county lines to help, too.
