Three juveniles admitted to setting the fire. Firefighters were on the scene 45 minutes. WEFR fireman Budd Montague was treated at the scene for smoke inhalation. A damage estimate was not available. The Vigilant Hose, Cumberland Valley Hose and West End Fire and Rescue companies battled the blaze.
