fire in township

A couple was driven from their home in Ligonier Township early Saturday morning when a chimney fire spread inside the walls of their residence in the midst of the snowstorm, a fire official said.
The fire at a house on Fantasy Lane, located off Route 711 south of Ligonier, spread along the walls on both sides of the chimney, forcing firefighters to open sections of the walls to fight the fire, said Patrick Kromel, assistant Waterford fire chief. Firefighters were able to stop the fire, which was reported at 3:45 a.m., by using a minimal amount of water, Kromel said.
