Police Probe Cause Of Trailer Fires

INDIANA, Pa. (AP) – State police are trying to figure out what started a fire that destroyed two neighboring mobile homes and a car parked nearby in western Pennsylvania.

Firefighters an state police say the blazes were reported sometime after 4 p.m. Saturday in White Township. That’s about 45 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.
