By: WJAC Web Staff

ANTIS TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- Firefighters were able to quickly extinguish an oven fire in a Blair County apartment building, and did so without needing to evacuate residents into the cold weather.

A Blair County emergency dispatch supervisor said crews were called to the Graystone Court Apartments in the Pinecroft area of Antis Township at about 9 a.m. Tuesday for an oven fire.

The supervisor said crews were able contain the fire to an oven in an apartment on the third floor of the building in the 2400 block of Pleasant Valley Boulevard.

Residents from the third floor were evacuated from their rooms, but were kept on the first floor while firefighters worked to ventilate the apartment where the fire happened, officials said. No injuries were reported.
