Firefighters called to Bath house fire
Bath Volunteer Fire Department responded to a house fire at 214-216 E. Northampton St. on the morning of Jan. 1.
According to Christopher Keenhold, Bath assistant fire chief, the two-alarm fire also brought out 11 other fire departments for assistance.
“We had a great response from area fire stations,” he said.
Two people were transported to the hospital for care, he reported. There were no other reported injuries.
The house is a near-total loss. A car parked beside the house in a driveway was destroyed. The Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church rectory next door sustained minor damage.
Fire marshals and a fire investigator were promptly on the scene to determine the cause. The fire is still under investigation.
There is a fundraising page on Facebook for the family — Bonita Morsching & Family Rebuild Fund — with details about what the family needs as well as a place to donate.
