Fire Destroys Pike County Home


One Pike County family lost most of their belongings and some pets in a house fire on Friday.

Firefighters from several departments throughout Pike County spent much of Friday afternoon battling a large house fire off of Cowpen Road in Coal Run.

Fire officials say they received a call about a home on fire in the Arrowhead Estates neighborhood just before eleven Friday morning.

Four different fire departments, Pike County Emergency Management, and The American Red Cross were all at the scene.

The homeowners say they were inside at the time of the fire. Thankfully, they did get out okay but unfortunately do not think their three cats made it out.

Firefighters worked for more than three hours to extinguish the flames. They are still investigating the cause of the fire.
