Fire rekindles at Mercer County Amish house

LACKAWANNOCK TOWNSHIP, Pa. (WKBN) – Firefighters are back at the scene of a fire in Lackawannock Township after the blaze rekindled.

Crews were called around noon Tuesday to the house on Greenfield Road. They returned to the scene just after 5 p.m.

When firefighters arrived earlier in the day, smoke and flames were shooting from the back of the house.

At least four people were in the house at the time of the fire and everyone made it out okay. A man was taken from the house in a wheelchair.

The structure is an old farm-house where witnesses say an Amish family lives. There was a delay in response to the fire because the family did not have a phone and had to travel to a neighbor’s house to call for help.

The house is a total loss.

Lawrence County dispatched for the fire which was located in Mercer County.
