January 19, 2009

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Firefighters contained a Saturday night house fire on Franklin Farm Lane to the living room, according to Franklin Deputy Fire Chief Steve Himes.

The fire department was dispatched at 10:13 p.m. and remained on the scene for an hour and a half. The cause and origin of the fire are under investigation by a Pennsylvania State Police fire marshal.

"The whole living room was pretty much involved. We forced the front door and went in," Himes said.

The family of five was outside the two-story, brick house when firefighters arrived and found somewhere to stay for the night, Himes said.
