Pennsylvania State Police are investigating a suspicious fire that destroyed or damaged multiple buildings in Halifax, Dauphin County. The fire started around 3 a.m. Wednesday along Armstrong Street. Firefighters said when they arrived, one home was already engulfed in flames and collapsing. The fire from that house spread to a nearby apartment complex with four units and another single family The Halifax mayor said the fire appears to be suspicious because no one lived in the homes and none of them have power. All of the homes were under renovation. Nearby residents alerted authorities to the blaze. While about 70 to 80 volunteer firefighters responded to the scene, Assistant Fire Chief Matthew Herrold said there were manpower issues at first.
