A woman who answered the phone at Littlestown's Alpha Fire Company says she can't confirm or deny firefighters were hurt.

Adams County 911 dispatchers say someone reported an odor in the house at 10:37 a.m. Friday and 19 minutes later — after firefighters had arrived to investigate — an explosion and fire were reported.

The fire was out by early afternoon.

It was not immediately clear what caused the odor or the explosion and fire, which remained under investigation.

Officers at the fire company didn't immediately return a message seeking additional information.

Littlestown is a tiny borough about 40 miles south of Harrisburg.
