Lewistown-area blaze shows power of mutual aid, community

The fire burned through Juniata Terrace, quickly roaring through a row of homes. The tiny Mifflin County borough outside Lewistown lost home after home — 25 in all and $6 million in damage. According to American Red Cross spokeswoman Kathy Smyser, as much as 10 percent of the municipality’s population was displaced Thursday night. No one was seriously injured.
