WEST CHESTER, Pa. (AP) - Firefighters have gotten the upper hand on an inferno that swept through a senior living community in Pennsylvania, injuring at least 20 people.
The fire chief says the blaze at Barclay Friends Senior Living Community in West Chester was brought under control just before 1:30 a.m. Friday.
However, the chief would not comment on the extent of injuries or if there were any deaths. He also wouldn't say how many residents lived at the senior living community about 35 miles (56 kilometers) west of Philadelphia.
Emergency responders and volunteers shuttled residents bundled in blankets from the blaze, which started around 11 p.m. Thursday.
The chief says the investigation into the cause is ongoing.
