Fire destroys Summit home

April 23, 2007

BLUE RIDGE SUMMIT, Pa. - A woman inside a house destroyed by fire overnight Saturday was flown by helicopter to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center in Baltimore for burns, said Blue Ridge Fire & Rescue Assistant Fire Chief Steve Moffat.

Moffat, who said he did not know the extent of the woman's injuries, said that she was walking outside the house at 15287 Dutrow Ave. when crews arrived.

The fire at the two-story woodframe construction home was reported at 10:54 p.m. Saturday, and firefighters from seven departments were on the scene until 1:10 a.m. Sunday.

"It's probably a total loss," Moffat said.

The origin and cause of the blaze were under investigation by the Washington Township Police Department's fire marshal, he said.
