Firefighters said a malfunctioning oil furnace may have been the cause of a fire Monday that caused minor damage to a building along Murrysville Road in Penn Township.

Penn Township, Murrysville and Irwin were among several fire companies that responded to the blaze that started at 8:49 a.m.

The initial call reported a chimney fire in a house near the turnpike, but the fire was actually in a building about 500 feet from the residence, according to fire officials. No injuries were reported.

Firefighters used chemicals to douse the blaze and had to tear apart a portion of the chimney to reach burning embers in the attic.
