Reynoldsville, PA – Everyone involved in the massive apartment fire in Reynoldsville has now found temporary housing.
It took ten fire companies hours to extinguish the fire on Tuesday afternoon, but their efforts ensured that no one was injured and kept the nearby Uni-Mart from catching fire.
The brick apartment building on Main Street was home to several people, all of whom were able to escape. Building owner Emery Wykoff says that everyone involved has found temporary housing.
Firefighters got the call around 4:45 on Tuesday afternoon, and the fire was out by 9.
The building was not insured. Wykoff reportedly plans on salvaging what he can and then will tear down the building and attempt to sell the property.
Dave Wruble, owner of the Sub Hub and a volunteer firefighter himself, says the call came in at the dinner hour. He left to battle the flames, and his sub shop crew made more than 50 subs for the hard-working firefighters.
He says the fire companies were well fed that night too with help from Firehouse Pizzeria in DuBois.
