Blaze Destroys Downtown Erie Home

Posted: Updated:

A huge blaze consumed the top story of a house in downtown Erie early Sunday morning.

The Erie Fire Department responded just after 4:00 a.m. to a home at 240 West Third Street.

The fire had a good head start. Flames caused the roof to collapse and the third floor as well.

At first firefighters thought someone was trapped inside, but that turned out not to be the case.

It took firefighters an hour just to get the flames under control. They were on the scene until 9:00 Sunday morning.
