West Side Fire Chases Out Two Families

SCRANTON Robert Caramanno was waiting for his new tenant to give him the all-clear to finish some renovations when she frantically informed him the place was on fire. Emergency crews quickly doused the flames that wrought heavy fire and smoke damage about 4 p.m. to the duplex Caramanno owns at 1111 S. Main Ave. His relatives live on the other side, at 1109 S. Main Ave., which sustained smoke and water damage. No one was injured, and all the victims said they had a place to say. What caused the fire remains under investigation. — JON O’CONNELL
