house fire in Ligonier Township

Two women escaped a fast-moving house fire Sunday afternoon in Ligonier Township.

Three crated dogs were rescued and revived, but two cats died, said Kurt Rose, assistant chief of Darlington Volunteer Fire Department.

The 12:20 p.m. fire at 102 Amherst Lane began in the kitchen on a stove top. It spread to a wall and quickly moved to the second floor, he said.
