CLEARFIELD, Pa. (AP) — Authorities in central Pennsylvania say no injuries were reported after a fire at a senior living facility in Clearfield.
Emergency dispatchers said the blaze at the Colonial Courtyard was reported at about 7:20 p.m. Tuesday.
Dispatchers said about 20 fire companies were called to the scene and about 60 people were evacuated from the facility.
