The county coroner says the fire occurred Thursday morning in Germany Township.

Authorities say the blaze broke out around 2:40 p.m. and crews were able to control it in less than an hour.

Authorities didn’t immediately identify the victim.

The cause of the blaze is under investigation.

It was the second deadly blaze in Adams County in less than two weeks.

A Feb 20 apartment building fire in Littlestown killed 55-year-old Walter Thrift III and displaced 19 other people, almost half of them children.
