MUNCY CREEK TOWNSHIP, LYCOMING COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — A farm event venue is badly damaged after a fire sparked by an extermination bomb, according to Pennsylvania State Police.

Firefighters were called to Wyndswept Farm and Vineyards, LLC. in the 3200 block of Muncy Exchange Road on February 11th just before 1:30 p.m. for a fire.
