SCRANTON, LACKAWANNA COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — According to PPL, around 1800 people woke up without power in Scranton Friday morning due to a crash.

“Engine 2 was the first to arrive. Tractor trailer into the house. They had heavy fire. The trailer was on fire and it was already extended into the front porch of the structure,” said Brian Scott, Assistant Chief of Scranton Fire Dept.

It happened just before 2:00 a.m. on Birney Avenue in Scranton, next door to Minooka Pastry Shop.

The tractor trailer hit the front of a home and took out some utility wires.

“I got a call from my night baker that he couldn’t get near the building,” owner of Minooka Pastry Shop, Robert Zakreski explained.

Zakreski says his business has been hit by vehicles twice in the last ten years.

But this time, the tractor trailer ran into the house next store, leaving them without power as we head into Labor Day weekend.

“We’re shut down. My goal is to get in touch with my customers who have ordered, but I have to get my computers up and running. We’re trying to get some generators to get some power,” Zakreski continued.

Two people were inside the time, but made it out okay.

The driver of the tractor trailer was transported to the hospital with minor injuries.

Crews are out in the area trying to get power restored.

As of 10:30 a.m., PPL says around 209 customers remain without power in Lackawanna County. You can fing the latest information on PPL’s Outage Map.
