Early video from a fire Saturday morning at Mike’s Lock and Hardware on Long Avenue in DuBois, Pennsylvania. Rescues were made from the apartments above the store.
Multiple fire departments from Clearfield and Jefferson counties responded to the call at 9:53 a.m. at 322 W. Long Ave., which also houses Mike’s Lock and Hardware store on the first floor, where the fire started, according to DuBois Volunteer Fire Chief Ben Blakley.
“Everybody who lived in the apartment building has been accounted for,” Blakley said Saturday evening while still at the scene cleaning up.
“It was called in as a working fire. We assumed entrapment because of the size of the building,” Blakley said. “The DuBois City Police Department was already here. They confirmed it was multiple entrapment. We made a total of six rescues. Three were pulled from the fire escape, two pulled from the second floor hallways and another person was rescued from the roof.”
