ENOLA, Pa. (WHTM) — Eight people were forced out of their homes by an early morning fire in Cumberland County.
The fire started shortly after 3 a.m. in a garage that was used as an artist studio in the 400 block of South Enola Drive in East Pennsboro Township. The studio, a home, and a taxidermy business were destroyed and a second home is heavily damaged.
The Red Cross is assisting residents who were displaced.
Firefighters not only battled the flames but the humidity.
“The humidity is terrible and it really drains a lot on firefighters, so they went to two alarms relatively quickly, mostly due to the amount of fire we had,” said Cumberland County public information officer John Bruetsch. “The fire spread rapidly.”
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
