Three people displaced after apartment fire in Harrisburg


Three people are displaced following an apartment fire in Harrisburg.

Harrisburg Bureau of Fire responded to a building fire just after noon on Sunday at 17 North 15th Street.  Upon arrival on scene, crews said they saw heavy smoke coming from the second floor of a three-story wood framed apartment building.

The fire chief said it took a little over 15 minutes for crews to control the fire.

The fire did not spread any further than the second floor.  Damages for the building are estimated at around $20,000.

Crews investigated the cause of the fire and determined it started in a  kitchen stove.  The fire was ruled to be accidental.

The three people that were displaced are being assisted by the American Red Cross.
