HUNTINGDON, Pa. (AP) - Firefighters are scrambling to determine what caused a fire at a central Pennsylvania Salvation Army building - and to help the charity replace the donated items destroyed by the blaze.

The Altoona Mirror (https://bit.ly/1RN9gTx ) reports firefighters and nearby churches are coordinating a drive to replace the items lost in Saturday afternoon’s fire in Huntingdon. That’s about 110 miles east of Pittsburgh.

The charity is providing a list of needed items, including jackets and snow suits, especially for smaller children.

A state police fire marshal and an investigator from the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives have been trying to determine what caused the fire.

Firefighters and church groups are hoping people will drop off donations at fire halls in Huntingdon and nearby McConnellstown.
