Fire marshal to probe vacant house fire

NEW CASTLE — The state police fire marshal has been called to investigate a vacant house fire in Union Township.

Firefighters were called to 1 Ann St. at 11:07 p.m. on Wednesday. They remained at the scene until 2:30 a.m. yesterday.

Union Township fire chief Steve Stasko said the house was fully involved when firemen arrived. He said the house was “a total loss,” but had no estimate on its value. The house had been vacant for about two years, he said.

The Union Township Volunteer Fire Department was assisted by firefighters from Mahoning Township and South New Castle Borough.

According to the Lawrence County assessment office, the house is owned by Ernest and Donna Jean Catron.

On Wednesday, the House of Representatives voted to authorize Speaker John Boehner to sue President Obama for allegedly overstepping his legal authority with the way he's handled Obamacare. Good call?

Yes. Obama's been overstepping his authority since day one in office. It's time he pay the piper.
No. The allegations are ridiculous and the law suit is a waste of time and tax payer money.
I don't know. I'm not a huge fan of Obama, but the suit seems a little extreme.
