A fire early yesterday gutted a building in Novinger used by Swafford Heating and Air Conditioning. The blaze, which brought members of five departments to fight it, was reported just after midnight yesterday, according to Fire Chief Barry Mitchell. He says by the time firefighters arrived, the building was engulfed in flame, and at the time firefighters left the scene about 7 hours later, it was still smoldering. The area around 2nd Street and Frankford was still blocked off. Swafford Heating and Air was the only active business in the building, which officials say at one time contained five businesses. No one was hurt, and the cause of the blaze remains under investigation.
