Crews spend hours battling Centre Co. house fire

By: Marc Stempka

PHILIPSBURG, Pa. -- Firefighters from two counties responded to battle flames at a home in Centre County.

Officials said the fire was reported at about 8 a.m. at the home in the 300 block of North 9th Street in Philipsburg.

The frame of the large home remained standing, but the inside was gutted, officials at the scene said. No one was home at the time the fire started and no injuries were reported. A family dog did die in the fire.

Fire crews from Clearfield and Centre counties were called to fight the flames.

Philipsburg Fire Department Chief Jeff Harris said firefighters had a difficult time battling the blaze because of hoses and fire trucks freezing with the near zero temperatures.

A state police fire marshal was called to investigate. There was no immediate word on what may have started the fire.
