Six Back Mountain fire departments lined more than 10 trucks along Mount Olivet Road in Kingston Township for an abandoned house fire. The fire started in the basement of the house directly across from the Frances Slocum State Park entrance, Shavertown Fire Chief Gary Beisel said. No one was injured and only smoke billowed from the windows and roof vents. The Luzerne County Fire Marshall was on the scene around 4 p.m. to investigate what caused the fire. John Martin, who lives nearby, stood by watching with his sister, Diane. The two grew up in the house, he said, and he indicated it had been empty for about 10 months.
