An oven fire at 3:31 p.m. Saturday at a residence at 105 Woodland Ave. could have turned into a more serious situation if the fire had not extinguished itself.

When Punxsutawney firefighters arrived on the scene, the fire was out and the damage was limited to the oven itself.

Firefighters were also called to a car fire at 6:09 p.m. Saturday at Sheetz, located at 100 Elk Run Ave.

The blaze was extinguished before firefighters arrived.

Central Fire Department also responded to a vehicle fire Sunday afternoon in an old bus located behind the Punxsy Bowling Alley on Pine Street.

The fire was extinguished before firefighters arrived on scene.

There were no injuries, and firefighters were assisted at all three of the fires by Punxsy Borough Police.
