[CDT] - A wooden cabin was spared from a wildfire in Potter Twp., Centre Co. Monday afternoon. Firefighters knocked down flames that began spreading at about 3pm near the cabin, located on Tussey Sink Road near Boalsburg. Crews worked to put out the blaze that was about 20 feet from the structure. No one was injured in the fire, and about four acres were consumed. Residents who had homes near the site of the fire called 911. They stood by as firefighters from Boalsburg, Centre Hall and Pleasant Gap doused the flames. Centre Hall fire chief, Kenny Strouse, told the CDT that “It’s been really dry, and with the wind blowing and an ember, it’s going to take off.”
