Young Child Dies Following Pittston Fire

July 09, 2019 - 10:47 am

Two State Police fire marshals continue looking for the cause of an early morning fire in Pittston that has now claimed the life of  a young boy.

Flames broke out  at 18 Wood St around one o'clock.  When the first crews arrived smoke and flames were already showing and the blaze quickly went to a second alarm for additional help. 

The child was rescued from a second floor window and  rushed to Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center where he later died . 

Five other people escaped the Luzerne County fire.
