There were some big stories breaking early in the week this week, with some almost-celebrity sightings, a house fire and a tragic shooting in the Poconos which had people talking on the Daily Item’s Facebook page.
Take a look at what people were talking about this week:
Monday, there was a huge house fire in Point Township, in which a family lost their home, but were all safe, which is the important thing. Here’s a photo from the scene:
On a much lighter note, fans of the A&E hit “Duck Dynasty” got worked up Wednesday, when a production truck parked at the Susquehanna Valley Mall, which they thought was carrying the stars of the show. Unfortunately, that was not the case.
Unfortunately, once again, I have extra photos from the scene of a fire.
And while fires can be devastating events, I continue to be amazed by how resilient people can be. For example, these photos are from Arbogast Lutheran Church in Mount Pleasant Mills, which has vowed to rebuild.
