Crews battle afternoon fire in Wilkes-Barre Township
WILKES-BARRE TOWNSHIP (WOLF-TV) —
Crews were out in the frigid temperatures Friday, battling this fire in Wilkes-Barre Township.
A garage and apartment were destroyed on Harris and Metcalf streets.
The heat was so strong, it melted the siding at a business across the street.
It's believed a tenant was heating up the apartment to thaw pipes when the fire started.
No word yet on an official cause of that fire here in Wilkes-Barre Township.
