Brockway, PA – A Brockway home was destroyed in a fire yesterday afternoon. Firefighters from multiple counties responded around 1 p.m. to a home on Pershing Street.

39-year-old Jamie Hynds was in the home at the time and was taken to Penn Highlands DuBois for smoke inhalation as a precaution.

Although the fire seems to have started in the living room and was initially reported as a couch fire, the fire marshal is still investigating the exact cause. Damage is estimated at more than $100,000.
