A Friday-evening fire in Peach Bottom Township claimed the life of a dog and left one person homeless, Delta-Cardiff Fire Chief Joe Strickler said.
Firefighters were called to a cabin in the 100 block of Meadow Trail at 5:53 p.m. and had the blaze under control in about 10 minutes, he said.
Crews remained on scene until nearly 11 p.m. doing cleanup and checking for hot-spots, he said.
The cabin is a total loss and damage is estimated at $120,000, according to a state police fire marshal, who is investigating to determine the cause of the blaze.
The displaced resident is Nancy Bloomer, police said.
Delta-Cardiff crews were assisted at the scene by firefighters from Airville, Fawn Grove and Harford County, Md., according to Strickler.
Bloomer is being assisted by the York-Adams Chapter of the American Red Cross, who is providing her with food, clothing and a place to stay, according to a news release from the agency.
