  Original Published: 9/18/2013Fire drove a family of four from their Madison Township home early Wednesday morning. The blaze broke-out at 4:30 am 728 Fairfax Avenue, causing damage extensive enough to possibly be a total loss. Fire Chief Dave Kissel has not determined how the fire started or where, but says the living room and front half of the one-story house was heavily damaged by flames. The rest of the house was damaged by smoke. Kissel does not believe the fire is suspicious in origin. The family of a husband, wife, and two young children was sleeping, awoke to popping and crackling sounds, and escaped unharmed. They're being assisted by the Red Cross. Chief Kissel does not plan to call the state fire marshal to help investigate, unless his fire inspectors are unable to determine the case. He thanks the Mansfield, Mifflin Township, and Franklin Township Fire Departments for helping put out the blaze quickly.
