Fire damages Beaver County row house

Saturday, Feb. 22, 2014, 11:30 a.m.

Fire badly damaged a row house early Saturday in Beaver County, emergency responders said.

They said no one was hurt in the blaze on the 200 block of West Madison Street in Rochester. Firefighters brought it under control within about 30 minutes of an emergency call at 5:30 a.m., according to the borough volunteer fire department.

A state fire marshal remained on the scene later Saturday morning to investigate the cause. Heavy damage to the first and second floors displaced the family living there, borough fire officials said.

They did not immediately release other details. It wasn't clear how many people were forced out.
