PERRY TOWNSHIP — A Reed Road house in Perry Township was nearly destroyed by a fire that broke out shortly after 9 p.m. Wednesday.

According to reports, the house was owned by Betty Kennedy, 91, who lived in the residence with her great-grandson, his wife and two-year-old child, all who escaped the burning structure safely.

The house was fully involved when the alarm was called into Jefferson County 911, which prompted Perry Township Assistant Chief Tim Fetterhoff to call for a second alarm.

According to scanner transmissions, the Punxsutawney-based Pennsylvania State Police fire marshal was called to investigate.

The Red Cross was contacted to assist family members with finding temporary housing.

Perry Township firefighters were assisted at the scene by Jefferson County EMS and the Ringgold, Oliver, McCalmont and Lindsey fire companies.

There were no injuries reported at Spirit press time.
