Residents in 24 apartment units in the Tremont Student Living complex were displaced after a fire broke out Sunday evening, Alpha Fire Company Chief Jason Troup said.
The Centre Region fire marshal is still investigating the cause of the blaze.
Multiple Centre County emergency crews were dispatched to the third-alarm fire off Vairo Boulevard at about 5:35 p.m., while severe thunderstorms rolled through the area. Once on scene, Troup said he could see heavy smoke and flames coming from the roof area of Building F.
“Crews went up to the third floor and began opening up the ceiling,” Troup said. “We also began searching the apartment to make sure everybody was out. We didn’t find anyone in either building, everyone had evacuated.”
