Firefighters on Thursday afternoon responded to a report of smoke in the elevators at the James F. Conahan Intermodal Center on South Washington Street in Wilkes-Barre. Assistant Fire Chief Thomas Burke said some trash at the bottom of the main elevator shaft next to the Martz Trailways terminal caught fire and produced just enough smoke to trigger a fire alarm. Firefighters moved the elevator out of the way and quickly extinguished the fire with a pressurized water can, Burke said. He said officials do not know how the trash caught fire.
