Location: 3400 Block Ellwood Road Shenango Township Lawrence County
04/05/14 Fire broke out in a one and one half story wood frame home on Ellwood Road in Shenango Township around 10:30 pm. Firemen arrived to find heavy flames coming from the rear of the structure. Flames were brought under control in a short time but firemen were on the scene for two and one half hours putting out hot spots. Two adults and two children were not at home at the time of the fire. No pets were believed to have been in the house. The fire marshal was called to investigate the cause of the fire. As of this morning, a cause could not be determined because of the extensive damage to the rear bedroom where the fire is believed to have started. The fire chief says the home is a total loss. No injuries were reported. Shenango was assisted by Taylor and Slippery Rock Township Fire Departments along with South New Castle Boro Fire Department.
