Woman, 89, several cats killed in Adams County fire


BIGLERVILLE, Pa. — An 89-year-old woman and several of her cats have died in a central Pennsylvania mobile home fire.

A state police fire marshal has continued to investigate the fire that killed Catherine Davis on Monday.

The fire in Franklin Township, Adams county, was reported about 12:20 p.m.

Buchanan Valley Fire Chief Mike Spielman says the fast-moving blaze gutted the woman’s mobile home. Firefighters also struggled with radio communications because the fire occurred in an area bordered by several fire companies, which kept some from communicating with others.
