Multiple crews responded to the scene of woods on fire Tuesday afternoon in Jackson Township.
The call came into the Butler County 911 Center shortly after 4 p.m. for a fire in the 100 block of Seneca School Road across from the Seneca Valley Secondary Campus and Athletic Fields.
Firefighters from Harmony District were joined by those from Evans City, Callery, Connoquenessing, Adams Area, and Cranberry to battle the blaze. At least one residence was threatened by the fire and an elderly couple needed assistance leaving their driveway.
A portion of Seneca School Road needed to be shut down for a time while crews worked to stretch fire hoses across the pavement.
