ASHLAND, Pa. (AP) - Authorities say fire has destroyed five buildings, including a business, on the main street of a Pennsylvania borough where an earlier blaze destroyed six buildings last month.

Fire crews in Schuylkill County were called to Ashland’s main street at about 3:40 a.m. Sunday and found the back of several buildings engulfed in flames.

Officials said a sandwich shop and homes at four addresses were destroyed. No injuries were immediately reported. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Last month, a similar blaze destroyed six row homes in Ashland. Officials said all 20 residents made it out safely but lost all of their belongings.
