An unoccupied house used for storage at 403 Morewood Ave., Blairsville, sustained minor damage from a fire that was discovered about 9 a.m. Saturday.

Blairsville Fire Chief George Burkley said volunteers traced the fire to the wooden floor on the ground level, and reported that the house also had damage from smoke and water.

The Black Lick, Homer City, Derry, Eastern Derry and Bradenville fire companies assisted at the scene.

Burkley said the fire did not appear to be suspicious in origin, but that a state police fire marshal would investigate on Monday. No one was injured, the chief said.
