Fire marshal to probe camper blaze

NEW CASTLE — The state police fire marshal was called to investigate a blaze that destroyed a Bonanni Road camper.

Jeff Parish, chief of the Volant Volunteer Fire Department, said the 67-year-old resident of the 1989 Prairie Schooner camper trailer was not at home Tuesday when the blaze broke out.

Parish said the camper was parked in the backyard of a Plain Grove Township residence. He said firefighters received the call about 1 a.m. Tuesday and remained at the scene for about an hour.

Participating were 25 firefighters from volunteer departments in Volant, Scott and Springfield Township in Mercer County.

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.
