Fire in Corryville marked by explosions

CORRYVILLE - Two people were injured in a fire at Dollar Value III at Corry and Vine streets Saturday night.

When firefighters arrived about 9 p.m., they saw heavy smoke coming from the building, said District 1 Fire Chief Steven Phillips. Fifteen firefighters went inside and then several large explosions went off, prompting Phillips to pull the firefighters out of the store.

The fire also spread to power lines extending down a block on Vine Street before it was brought under control.

Two people who were inside the store were taken to the hospital, but Phillips said their injuries did not appear to be serious.
