SCOTLAND, Pa. - Seven people were left homeless Friday afternoon by a fire that heavily damaged a house in Greene Township.
"That's my birthday present. Nowhere to live on my birthday," said Annette Griffith of 1463 State St. She said she arrived home from work shortly after the fire.
The cause of the 3:49 p.m. fire was undetermined and is being investigated by a Pennsylvania State Police fire marshal, Fayetteville Volunteer Fire Co. Deputy Chief Scott Williamson said. The family was staying in a local motel Friday night, he said.
Williamson said there were three people in the house, two of them children, at the time of the fire. All got outside, with one suffering from minor smoke inhalation, but refusing treatment, he said.
