Fire damages apartment building in Schuylkill County

A fire damaged an apartment building early Wednesday morning in Minersville.

MINERSVILLE, Pa. — Flames forced more than half a dozen people out of their homes in Schuylkill County.

The apartment building along Sunbury Street in Minersville caught fire just before 4 Wednesday morning.

In all, eight people were displaced.

The building next door was damaged, too.

"Yes, you can see when you start cleaning up, you can see more damage than you can actually see on the outside of the building. When you go inside, you can see more extensive damage, and it's just so sad for our community to see what those people lost," said Victor Pranscavage of Minersville.

The cause of Wednesday morning's fire in Minersville remains under investigation.
