CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A mother and son were injured and the family's cat died Thursday morning in a fire at the Roselawn Motel, 2347 Molly Pitcher Highway.
Donna Barbour and her 31/2-year-old son Matthew were taken to Chambersburg Hospital for treatment of smoke inhalation, according to Franklin Fire Company Assistant Chief Denny L. Clopper. The mother also was treated for burns to her feet, he said.
The husband and father, John Barbour, was not in the motel room at the time of the fire, Clopper said.
Donna Barbour apparently tried to put the 9:36 a.m. fire out herself, he said.
A resident of the motel alerted the manager, who lives in the center of the stone complex and called 911. The manager also called the owner, Gary Patel of Gettysburg, Pa.
