UPDATE: 6-alarm fire in Juniata Terrace

UPDATE: A fire in Mifflin County damages at least 25 row homes and destroys six.

Flames broke out at 332 Terrace Boulevard in Juniata Terrace around 6:30 Thursday night.

Chief Scott Beers with Junction Fire Company, based in Grandville Township, tells us that the homes which were not destroyed may have damage in the attic.

The row homes are connected by a crawlspace in the attic which caused the fire to quickly spread.

Fire crews had trouble bringing water to the area and had to call in more than 20 tankers.

Two firefighters were hurt.

One hurt their elbow coming down some stairs, the other suffered from smoke inhalation.

No one who lived in the homes has been reported injured, but some pets may be missing.

Fire crews from five different counties helped fight the flames.

Five crews from five counties battle a 6-alarm fire at 322 Terrace Boulevard, Terrace Apartments in Mifflin County. The fire began around 6:30pm Thursday night and spread to 10-15 row homes.

We have a reporter on scene and will update this story.
