JOHNSONBURG – Elk County was burned with another arson case after an early-morning fire torched a residence owned by Albert Lee Abplanalp, age 59, at 208 Church St. in Johnsonburg.
The initial call was placed at 12:58 a.m. as a fire destroyed a single-stall garage, four residential structures, and a vehicle. The residence at 208 Church St. sustained the most damage, as the fire originated in a detached single-stall garage at the property and spread to the main residence situated only a few feet away.
Flames also destroyed a 2003 Chevrolet SUV parked nearby and owned by Benji Fields of 206 Church St. Radiant heat from the fire also damaged 204 and 206 Church St. and caused minor damage at 223 Willow St.
