Police investigate Saltsburg fire

Monday, Dec. 23, 2013, 4:33 p.m.

A state police fire marshal is investigating an early Monday fire at an abandoned Indiana County home.

Saltsburg Fire Chief John Dice said there was no operating heat or electricity at the Wood Street residence. The fire may have started in the basement, he said.

Firefighters responded to the home at 2:50 a.m. Monday and found heavy smoke and a “fully-involved first floor,” Dice said. There was significant interior damage to the story-and-a-half structure, but the brick exterior is sound, he said.

No one was inside and there were no injuries.
