Firefighters battle fire in Harrisburg

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – An investigation is underway into what caused a rowhome fire in Harrisburg Wednesday night.

The fire started around 10:30 p.m. along the 300 block of Maclay Street, near the intersection of Fourth Street.

When crews arrived, the fire was already fully involved. We’re told it started in a vacant home and quickly spread to three other homes.

Fire officials say there were several concerns while battling the fire because of a wall collapse that gave way to buildings next to it.

Crews were delayed in fighting the fire after a driver ran over a hose and kept going. As a result, the water supply was unavailable for several minutes.

The Red Cross is helping nine adults forced out of their homes. There were no reported injuries.

This is a developing story. ABC27 News will provide more information as it becomes available.
