Uniontown PD and the State Police Fire Marshal are conducting a follow-up investigation.

Upon arrival smoke was pouring from the roof of the stone, turn-of-the-century, Victorian style building. Several employees and customers could do nothing more than stand in the street and watch as the firefighters worked to extinguish the cause of the smoke. The fire was confined to the third and fourth floors of the commercial building and appeared to be electrical in nature, according to Uniontown Fire Chief Jim Wood. Although the business was open at the time and people were inside, no injuries were reported.
