Chester skies were ablaze in the dark hours of Saturday, Dec. 3, after a garage fire at 259 First Ave. quickly spread next door to the residence at 265 First Ave. By the time it was over, the fire had left two families homeless.
“Chester Fire Rescue received the call at 1:28 a.m. and when I arrived on scene at 1:35 a.m. the two structures were pretty well involved. The winds were also whipping the fire toward a third residence at 271 First Ave.,” Assistant Fire Chief Nick Dawson said.
