SOUTH CANAAN – A fire that took place early Monday morning has displaced a family of four.

The Lake Ariel Volunteer Fire Company, along with first alarm assignment, was dispatched to 93 Mid Valley Road for a working residential structure fire around 8:19 a.m.

“First arriving personnel confirmed a fully involved house fire,” said Mike DiPierro, deputy chief for the Lake Ariel Volunteer Fire Company.

He added the Maplewood Fire Chief Dave Corazzi confirmed the fire.

“At that time the homeowner quickly notified the Maplewood chief that everyone was out of the residence and safe,” DiPierro stated.

According to a report from the Pennsylvania State Police (PSP), the first arriving crews encountered “heavy fire throughout the structure and partial collapse of the dwelling.”

“Lake Ariel supply truck was able to pump water from the neighbor's pond right to the fire scene,” DiPierro said.

“It's not very often fire companies have a scenario like that to have unlimited amount of water outside a hydrant district.”

Assisting at the scene were Maplewood, Waymart, Jefferson Township, Hamlin, Prompton and Seelyville Fire Departments and Waymart Ambulance.

“Due to the complete loss of the structure and all its contents, an ignition source could not be identified,” stated the PSP report. “The fire was undetermined in nature.”

No injuries were reported.

Despite efforts by emergency personnel the home was a total loss.

“The American Red Cross is providing emergency assistance for lodging, food and clothing to two people after a fire on Mid Valley Road in South Canaan Township, Wayne County this morning,” stated Dave Skutnik, regional communications manager for the Red Cross Eastern Pennsylvania.

The fire is under investigation by PSP.
