NOXEN — A state police deputy fire marshal is investigating the cause of a fire that forced three people from their residence on Tuesday.
Fire departments from Wyoming County and the Back Mountain region of Luzerne County responded to 127 Hill St. just after 9:30 a.m. for the blaze.
At least one person was home at the time. No injuries were reported.
Tanker trucks were brought in due to a lack of hydrants and the remote location of the house on a steep hill. Firefighters had the blaze under control within an hour.
The American Red Cross was at the scene assisting three people who lived in the house, which sustained fire and smoke damage and water damage on the first floor.
