NEW CASTLE, Pa. (AP) - Some Amish neighbors have helped a western Pennsylvania businessman rebuild a saw-sharpening shop that burned in a fire less than two months ago.

Kaufman’s Saw Sharpening Shop in Neshannock Township burned Feb. 18. A state police fire marshal as the business, about 45 miles northwest of Pittsburgh, burned because of problems with a flue pipe from a wood-burning stove.

The New Castle News (https://bit.ly/1c0JwlD ) reports several Amish neighbors - many of whom are customers of the business - gathered to rebuild it Saturday.

The owner tells the newspaper he’s already open on a limited basis and hopes to be fully operational in a few weeks.

The fire caused about $40,000 damage. Firefighters kept damage to the owner’s nearby home to a minimum.

Nobody was hurt in the fire.
