BURLINGTON TWP. - A fire destroyed a privately owned structure on Saturday afternoon, located along U.S. Route 6 in Burlington Township.

According to North Towanda Fire Chief Terry Sheets - which was the initial responder - units were dispatched to the scene around 5:30 p.m. In addition to North Towanda, firefighters from Smithfield, Troy, Ulster and Monroeton also were sent to fight the fire.

No injuries were reported, Sheets continued, and the cause of the fire is unknown as of late Sunday night. The chief said the scene is scheduled to be investigated today by the state police fire marshal in an attempt to determine the cause of the blaze. The structure was destroyed by the fire, Sheets said.
