Matthew Kissell and his son, Daniel, have made a tradition of stopping at the Burger King in South Greensburg after his football games for what the pair call “Whopper Wednesdays.” This week, the seventh grader at Harrold Middle School and his father opted to head straight to their Hempfield home instead. The elder Kissell is thankful he did because their house was on fire. “Danny got out of the car, and my wife, Amy, was out in the driveway talking to our oldest daughter, Olivia, who had stopped by … and I look over, and Danny’s by the door leading to the kitchen waving his arms like crazy, and there’s a cloud of black smoke there,” Matthew Kissell said. The Kissells and their family, which includes seven children ranging in age from 9 to 22, have lived in the home on the 400 block of Newport Drive for more than 20 years.
