Diamond Avenue Fire Update
Fire officials have determined that the cause of a Hazleton fire may never be known. The investigation into last Tuesday’s blaze is now complete with the insurance company, City Fire Department and State Police Fire Marshal. Although what sparked this blaze fire will remain a mystery, the City’s Deputy Fire Chief Brian Mandak tells News 13, there is a strong possibility it was a juvenile playing with fire, but the hypothesis cannot be proven because there is not enough evidence. Already this year, just in Hazleton, three fires were proven to have been set by juveniles. The Chief suggests all parents speak to their kids about fire prevention.
