A fire on Saturday afternoon damaged the former Mount Carbon Fire Company building.

Around 12:45pm, Saturday, emergency personnel were dispatched to 716 South Centre Street in Mount Carbon for a report of a structure fire.

Police and firefighters arrived and advised of a working fire on the first floor at 700 South Centre Street, the former Mount Carbon Fire Company building.
