City fire crews were called out overnight to a burning structure near UPMC Altoona.
Around 1:40am firefighters responded to Chestnut Avenue and 8th Street where a vacant apartment building was burning. Altoona Fire Chief Tim Hileman tells WRTA News that early on he thought it may be a pretty big fire.
Hileman says Hot Spots kept crews on scene for several hours after the situation was under control.
It’s not clear at this point what caused the fire but that building and others around it have a history of being used by squatters. :11
Fire officials say that no utilities were hooked up to the building.
