Editor’s note: Due to inaccurate information previously provided, this report has been corrected and updated.

A motorhome in Fawn was destroyed by fire on Friday.

The fire at 1070 Millerstown Road was reported shortly before 12:45 p.m., according to Allegheny County 911. Firefighters from Fawn, Tarentum and West Deer were at the scene until almost 2:30 p.m.

No injuries were reported.

Fawn police said the fire happened at a home owned by John Fortuna. Norene Fortuna said in an email that the fire destroyed their motorhome, and not their house.

Police did not know the cause of the fire. Officials with Fawn Township Volunteer Fire Dept. No. 1 could not be reached for comment.

The Allegheny County fire marshal was not asked to investigate the fire, a county spokeswoman said.

TribLIVE commenting policy

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.
