Barbershop to remain closed until next week

NEW CASTLE — Barry’s Barbershop at 1702 1/2 Highland Ave. will remain closed at least until Tuesday.

Owner Barry Fleeger said his shop sustained heavy smoke damage from a fire Wednesday night that seemed to have originated at Clark’s Alterations, next door in the same building. Mom’s Pizza, at the end of the building, also sustained smoke damage.

The fire is being called suspicious.

New Castle Fire Chief Mark Panella called in the city police department’s fire inspector and Pennsylvania State police fire marshal.
