Fire In Lycoming County Home

Posted on: 7:49 am, January 23, 2013, by

MUNCY CREEK TOWNSHIP — Flames hit a home early Wednesday in Lycoming County.

Crews were called to the place on West Water Street near Muncy around 5:30 a.m.

Flames were coming from the home when Newswatch 16 was on scene.

With temperatures near freezing, firefighters had to deal with a frozen hydrant and crews slipping and falling on ice.

“(We had to) seek alternate sources like a different hydrant, bring in extra manpower. We actually had a school bus on the scene so the firefighters could get warmed up for a bit,” said Chief Scott Delany of the Muncy Area fire department.  

There is no word from fire officials on the cause of the fire.
