Two dead after Schuylkill County fire
Authorities in eastern Pennsylvania say an early morning fire in an apartment building claimed the lives of a couple and sent another person to the hospital.
Fire officials in Schuylkill County say the blaze in the three-story building in Mahanoy City was reported just before 2 a.m. Saturday.
Deputy Coroner David Truskowsky said 60-year-old Adele Seabra was pronounced dead at the scene.
Officials said 69-year-old Morris Seabra was rescued from the second floor and treated at the scene but was pronounced dead shortly after arrival at a Pottsville-area hospital.
Another man was flown to a hospital but his condition was not immediately available.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
