A fire tore through a pair of Manor Township businesses early Tuesday morning, authorities said.

The automatic fire alarm at the Manor Inn and Mario's Pizza and More summoned first responders to the 500 block of Hill Street shortly before 3:15 a.m. Tuesday, Armstrong County 911 dispatchers said. They found heavy smoke rising from the building on their arrival.

Firefighters and equipment from Manor Township and eight other departments responded, and were focused mostly on attacking the fire from the exterior of the building. They were still putting out hot spots as of 5:15 a.m., dispatchers said.

Tribune-Review news partner WPXI-TV reported that the roof had collapsed. The businesses had only been open for about seven months, the owner told the TV station.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
