Investigators are searching for the case to a terrible house fire in Pottsville that killed six people. The deadly fire started just before midnight on Pierce Street.
Christina Groves likes just behind the home that caught on fire on Sunday night. She recalled those first awful moments.
“We woke up to my daughter screaming. it’s fire, it’s fire, it’s fire.” says neighbor Christina Groves, “I looked out my bedroom window and you could see a towering inferno immediately.”
Groves got her family out as firefighters warned them that this fire was out of control and it could spread.
Neighbors, police officers and firefighters worked around the clock to fight the flames while attempting to rescue the six people trapped inside the burning building.
The victims were found on the third floor and even though Fire Chief Todd March feels the victims could not be saved, he and his department take this horrible tragedy personally.
