Firefighters respond to Cambria Co. blaze

By: WJAC Web Staff

NORTHERN CAMBRIA, Pa. -- A Cambria County homeowner walked out of his home to take out his trash and when he returned he found that his house was on fire, according to police.

A Cambria County emergency dispatch supervisor said crews were called to a home in the 3300 block of Bigler Avenue in Northern Cambria about 9 a.m. Tuesday for a reported fire.

Crews had to cut a hole through the homes roof and break windows to ventilate smoke from inside, officials said. The extent of damage caused by the fire was not immediately known and the cause of the fire remained under investigation.

No injuries were reported.

Bigler Avenue, which is also Route 219, was closed for a short period time, causing traffic to be detoured while fire crews were on the scene.
