RUSH TOWNSHIP — A family who helps operate Crest Haven Farm Market was left homeless Saturday night when fire destroyed their ranch-style home along a rural road behind the popular Mennonite store along Route 54.
Firefighters from several municipalities worked in below-freezing temperatures for several hours before bringing the blaze under control.
Left homeless were Marvin and Janelle Eshbach and their four young children, who reside along Crest Haven Road. The Eshbachs were not home when the fire broke out, and no injuries were reported.
Flames could be seen for miles by motorists traveling Route 54 between Riverside and Elysburg.
