ROUZERVILLE, Pa. - Firefighters on Thursday afternoon returned to a home in the Beartown area of Washington Township, Pa., for the third time in two months.
The Blue Ridge Fire & Rescue Squad was called to 11114 Woodring Lane at 1:15 p.m. and remained there for three hours, Administrator Patrick E. Fleagle said.
Firefighters went to the single-story home at Christmastime when problems arose with heat tape that had been applied to pipes, Fire Chief Jim Meek said. A small fire shortly thereafter remained under investigation by the Washington Township Police Department, he said.
A police investigation has been opened into the origin and cause of Thursday's blaze, said Fleagle, who described the damage as extensive.
