House fire sends Sharon firefighter to hospital


SHARON, Pa. (WYTV) – A Sharon firefighter was taken to the hospital Thursday night after responding to a house fire.

Fire Chief Robert Fiscus says the call came in around 6:15 p.m. for a fire at a house on Liberty Street.

He says much of the fire was coming from one side of the home.

Everyone inside was accounted for, but one firefighter was hurt and taken to the hospital.
“We’ve interviewed the occupant, he’s accounted for. He said there was no one else in the building. At this point there’s no reason to believe it’s suspicious, but we’ll investigate it,” Fiscus said.
