WILKES-BARRE, LUZERNE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU-TV) — Multiple crews were called to a fire on the 100 block Dana Street in Wilkes-Barre just before 8:30 Friday morning. Crews from Kingston, Nanticoke and Wilkes-Barre are all on scene.

The crews fought the fire for over an hour, they are working to control hotspots.

The fire is reported to have affected three properties. No injuries were reported and we are told nine people have been displaced.

“Just because of the heavy fire load, and the buildings being so close to each other, the fire hopped from one building to the second to the third. Fortunately our crews did a great job,” said Wilkes-Barre Fire Chief Jay Delaney.

The cause of the fire is unknown at this time and is being investigated by the Wilkes-Barre Fire Department.
