A fire ripped through a home in Luzerne County leaving four people displaced and the home severely damaged. 28/22 News Reporter Emily Allegrucci was on scene and she spoke with two men who sprung into action when they heard cries for help. The fast-spreading fire in Avoca required backup from several departments around the area. But even before the first crews arrived on scene, a pair of local workers were running toward the flames. A large structure fire broke out on Main Street in Avoca just before 4:00 p.m. on Thursday. “Just a bunch of smoke, a bunch of fire and it just rapidly shot up,” said Allentown resident Kenderick Brown. Multiple crews from Luzerne and Lackawanna Counties responded to the fire that was quickly spreading.
