Fire Victims Salvage Belongings
It was a terrible smokey blaze, which investigators say started accidentally. The fire at the corner of Cedar and Green Streets in Hazleton Sunday morning destroyed an entire apartment building, putting 11-tenants out on the streets. One of those tenants, Pedro DeJesus, sat on the sidewalk Monday morning, waiting for a friend to pick him up. Next to him, sat a pile of his belongings that he was able to salvage. The blaze started on the second floor of the building, but still managed to destroy Pedro’s first floor apartment. The Red Cross is now assisting all of the victims, which include three children.
