Attacking the Blaze

An early morning fire destroyed a two-story 1992 manufactured home at 98 Buena Vista St., Wellsboro, Sunday, Sept. 22.

Wellsboro Fire Department personnel reported the house was well involved minutes after the 2:42 a.m. dispatch. A second alarm was issued just after 2:45 a.m. and Middlebury, Mansfield and Blossburg’s Rehab trailer were all dispatched to the scene.

The fire was reported out within an hour. Wellsboro crews cleared the scene at about 5:42 a.m.

Pete and Cassie Boergermann and their family were able to flee their burning single family home.

The Boergermann’s daughter was also living there with her children.

The family lost most of their belongings according to family and a neighbor.

There are two links where people can make donations to assist the family.
