Sharon FD: Neighborhood where house caught fire has seen several acts of arson

Fire crews fight a blaze at a home in Sharon.

SHARON, Penn. (WKBN) – Fire crews responded to a house fire in Sharon at about 3:00 a.m. Friday.

The fire on Wallis Ave. was out by 4:00 a.m. Sharon Fire Chief Robert Fiscus said no one was inside at the time.

The cause is under investigation.

Fiscus said that the fire department initially thought a family of three live in the home, but the family just moved out a month ago.

Fiscus said if anyone was in the home, they wouldn’t have survived. The house was completely up in flames, through roof and coming out of windows when they arrived.

Crews faced some difficulties fighting the fire, like cold weather and the house being located next to an ally, which made it tight for trucks to fit through.

When asked if he thought anything was suspicious about the fire, Fiscus said he would rather not comment, but he did say there have been numerous acts of arson in that neighborhood.
