Bloomsburg Fire Update

Still no word as to what caused a fire at a two story home at the corner of 8th and Poplar Streets in Bloomsburg Tuesday. The blaze destroyed the home of Gwen Zubler of 304 E. Eighth... and that of next door neighbor Larry Poust. Joanne Kelley... who lives across Poplar... was having coffee with a friend when she first spotted the flames. Deputy Bloomsburg Fire Chief Hugh Gross was one of the first people on the scene... and all he saw was smoke... and immediately requested a second alarm. Firemen were faced with high winds and a heavy snow showers. The flames were so intense... it melted the aluminum siding on the home directly across the street belonging to David Barnes. Poust collapsed at the scene and was taken to the Bloomsburg Hospital... and later transferred to Geisinger in Danville.

 

Two firefighters were also injured. Deputy Chief Gross says he believes the fire started in the kitchen area of the building. Investigators are expected to be back at the fire scene Wednesday.
