New Kingstown Fire Chief Curt Hall says that the fire has been ruled accidental
The fire company met with the PSP Fire Marshal when he arrived on scene and they determined the fire started in the area of the furnace.
It is believed that the furnace, which used fuel oil, was the cause of the fire.
A fire broke out Thursday morning at an auto body shop in Silver Spring Township, Cumberland County.
Police say the blaze broke out around 7:30 on the 1100 block of West Trindle Road at Starting Line Auto Body.
Over fifty-five firefighters responded to the scene, and tankers were brought in because there wasn't a close enough water supply to fight the flames.
Freezing temperatures didn't play a factor on fighting the blaze, and a heated tent was set up for firefighters standing by.
It took about 40 minutes to get the fire under control, and New Kingstown Fire Chief Curt Hall says hard working volunteer firefighters made that possible. "Volunteer firefighters are hard workers. There's not too many people that want to stand in the tent when there's work to be done, so we had a good crew of personnel working today. The fire was under control quickly, and no injuries at this time."
No one was in the auto body shop at the time the fire broke out. The cause is under investigation by the state Fire Marshal.
Crews are still on scene of a fire at Starting Line Auto Body Shop in Silver Spring Township, Cumberland County.
Officials say there were no injuries.
The cause of the fire is still being investigated.
