Two women died in a fire in a Wilkes Barre high rise. Crews got the call to smoke and flames coming from an apartment in the Lincoln Plaza over looking South Wilkes Barre Boulevard yesterday just before noon. The women identified as 62 year old Luanne Gilroy and 55 year old Gloria Neives were found in their apartments on the 5th floor.

150 tenants were evacuated and many spent the night at GAR High School. Residents are expected to be able to return today. There's still no word on a cause.
