Brush Fire Spreads to Abandoned Garage in Cass Township

A brush fire spread to an abandoned garage in Cass Township Saturday.

Just before noon Saturday, emergency personnel were called to the area near the intersection of Valley Road and Highridge Park Road, Cass Township, for a brush fire.

When crews arrived, they found the brush fire had spread to a nearby abandoned garage.

A tanker task force was called and Valley Road was closed while crews battled the blaze.

Minersville and Gordon fire companies assisted Heckschersville Fire Company along with other units from around Schuylkill County in the tanker task force.

It took crews several hours before bringing both fires under control.
