Terrible news out of Pennsylvania as Fire Marshals are investigating the cause of a fire that has taken multiple lives-ages 6-70. Companies were called to a single family dwelling in Nescopeck (Luzerne Co, PA) around 0230 hours, today, Friday. At least three people are confirmed dead in the fire, and many more are still missing.
Shockingly, Nescopeck Volunteer Firefighter Harold Baker said his children and grandchildren were in the home, and all are currently missing. FF Baker apparently has family ties to all 14 people who were staying in the home-and has not seen or heard from 10 of those family members.
Firefighters (including Baker) arrived to find heavy fire conditions. members made numerous attempts to gain entry. Apparently missing in the fire are his son, his daughter, his grandson, two other grandkids, his father-in-law, his brother-in-law, and his sister-in-law. There were also 13 dogs in the home. Not everybody was living there; several people were just visiting family.
Pennsylvania State Police Fire Marshals are calling this a “complex criminal investigation” and the coroner and Firefighters remain on scene.
