Five displaced in York Haven fire

Five people and four pets were displaced after a fire in York Haven, according to a fire official.

Susquehanna Fire Co. Chief Mark Sanders said the fire at a one-story home in the first block of Gay Street started about 6 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 28.

The fire, he said, started in a bedroom of the home.


“We had fire out the front windows of the bedroom, the front and side window of the bedroom," he said.

The chief said the bulk of the damage was contained to the bedroom.

“Basically we held the fire to that bedroom with some extensions to the hallway and the adjoining bedroom," he said.

Sanders said the hallways and the bathroom had heavy heat damage. He said it looked like the damage could be repaired.

The residents, two adults and three children, were home during the fire, according to the chief. The five of them, as well as one dog and three cats, were uninjured, he said.

The cause of the fire is undetermined, but it does not look suspicious, according to the chief. Sanders did not have a damage estimate.

Crews were at the scene for about two hours, the chief said.

“We’re just glad everybody was out safe," he said.

The Red Cross is assisting those displaced.
