State police at DuBois

  • An accidental fire occurred Saturday at a Knarr Street residence in DuBois. The fire started on the exterior near the cable connection box, state police said, noting it appears there was an electrical malfunction, which caused a ground wire to become energized and the metal cable connection to become hot enough to smolder. This, state police said, resulted in the ignition to the side of the residence and a neighbor to call 9-1-1 and the homeowner upon noticing a small fire. The homeowner subsequently extinguished the fire; the DuBois Fire Department responded to complete an overhaul and to check for fire extension. State police indicated that damage was minimal to the residence and estimated at $10,000.
