Fire threatens nearly entire block in Shamokin
SHAMOKIN - Fire personnel reported to the scene of a fully involved structure fire at 10:58 a.m. at 5 S. Rock St. that is now threatening nearly an entire block. Scanner reports initially indicated possible entrapment of a 12 year old in the attic of the home.
The fire has since spread to adjacent homes from 1 S. Rock to 9 S. Rock as smoke billows from every roof of the structures involved. Many of the homes are attached “row homes.” Firefighters are working from the front and back of the structures in effort to get the fire under control. More on this story as it develops.
