Harrison Township, Pa. – All 3 fire companies from Harrison Township and a RIT crew from Tarentum responded to a porch fire located in the 1300 block of Saxonburg Road Sunday night just before 11:00 pm.

Crews were able to get a quick knock-down on the fire but not before both ends of the structure and the underneath center portion of the front porch were scorched from the fire.

Sources at the scene said the fire only got into the structure at a basement doorway and no other inside rooms of the house were affected. Crews heavily doused the left front corner of the residence while pulling down soffit checking for extensions.
