The fire was first reported at 2:10 a.m. off Fowler Lane. Firefighters from Union, North Beaver and Mahoning townships and South New Castle Borough worked to put out the flames.

Firefighters were at the scene about two and a half hours, Stasko said. He added no one was injured

It’s been a unique week on the marriage front. Actress Jodie Foster married her longtime girlfriend, while a lesbian trio that wed last year, who bill themselves as a “throuple,” have announced they are expecting. What’s your take on alternative unions?

I’m against it. I believe in one man, one woman.
I’m OK with it. As long as they’re adults, they can marry whoever they want.
A lesbian “throuple?” Really? SMH.
