NEW DETAILS-Crews battle fire in Huntington

Posted: Updated:


The fire at an abandoned house on 28th Street and Eighth Avenue Wednesday night is being investigated by the Huntington Fire Marshal, according to Deputy Chief Brian Grieco of the Huntington Fire Department.

Grieco says they are not calling it suspicious yet, but the fact that it was abandoned, along with witness information, lead them to call the Huntington Fire Marshal in to investigate.

Neighbors said the house had been empty for a long time.



Crews worked several hours on a house fire in Huntington.

It happened on the 2800 block of 8th Avenue.

Firefighters say no one was living in the house at the time of the blaze.

The fire chief says witnesses heard a loud bang and when they looked outside, they saw a people taking pictures of the house before speeding away from the scene.

The fire broke out shortly thereafter.

The investigation continues this morning.
