ELLWOOD CITY (KDKA) — Firefighters in Lawrence County battled a late night house fire in Ellwood City on Friday night.
The fire happened at the intersection of Center Avenue and Ninth Street.
Crews were called to the scene around 11:00 p.m. and had the fire knocked down before 1:00 a.m.
KDKA has been told that no one was injured and that the state fire marshal is expected to be at the scene on Saturday to investigate.
