Punxsutawney firefighters were called to a basement fire at 7:07 p.m. Saturday at 102 Water St.

The fire was quickly extinguished by firefighters and caused mostly smoke damage in the basement.

Joe Defelice, Punxsutawney Fire Department assistant chief, said the fire was due to a sump pump that had overheated.

There were no injuries and the family was able to return to their home once the basement was ventilated.
