Loyalhanna Township, Pa. – Fire destroyed the Kiski Valley Inn, located at 154 Harvat Road overnight after heavy flames broke out in the lower right corner of the structure and spread to the main roof leaving fire crews to battle the blaze from the exterior of the restaurant.

At the scene: Fire apparatus lined Harvat Road with a main water hose stretched to the fire scene as crews poured water on the structure from ariel ladder trucks while hand lines were used all around the structure by firefighters assisting from surrounding communities.

Saltsburg Fire Chief John Dice said the call came in about 3:30 am for a working structure fire and he could see flames from his house about a 1/2 mile away. Chief Dice said he could see fire through the roof extending to about 1/2 of the building. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
