Flames Shut Down Scranton Tavern

SCRANTON — Fire damaged a business in Lackawanna County Friday morning.

Flames started around 9:30 a.m. at Heil’s Place on Wheeler Avenue in Scranton.

Authorities said a worker using a heat gun trying to thaw frozen pipes set fire to wood and insulation.

Firefighters said they put the fire out quickly but the building has a lot of smoke damage.

Because smoke damaged some food and alcohol, a city inspector said the place must remain close until the clean-up is complete. There is no word how long that will take.
