Fire kills animals at Wysox Township business, building destroyed
WYSOX TOWNSHIP, PA (WENY) -- Several fire departments were called out to a large building fire in Wysox Township in Bradford County on Friday night.
Crews were called out to the area of Golden Mile Road and Craftmaster Road in the Township. There, a business appears to be completely destroyed. A fire official on scene says the roof of the business has collapsed.
The destroyed building is, "Endless Supply Company". On the internet, the business is listed as a farm equipment supplier that also offers pet grooming services.
Fire officials on scene say they could not save the animals inside. There's no official information on what animals were inside, or how many.
The Assistant Fire Chief for Wysox, Evan Barnes, said, "Upon initial dispatch, the first crews tried to make access through side D of the structure, but at that time these trust construction roofs come down quite quickly and it's never worth a firefighter's life for animals, unfortunately."
As of right now, there's no word on the cause. Wysox fire officials say they received the call around 8:30PM.
