NEW CASTLE, Pa. -- At least eight people werehomeless after a fire destroyed a Highland Avenue apartment complex. The American Red Cross is assisting residents with shelter, putting some up in area hotels, food and clothing, a spokeswoman said today.

More residents may have been out of the area for the weekend and are not yet accounted for, she said.

Fire Chief James Donston said firefighters aren't sure how the blaze started at 305 Highland Ave., but know it began in a third-floor apartment and extended to the roof. The Pennsylvania State Police fire marshal is investigating the cause.

There were five apartments in the building and four people at home when the blaze began at 5:30 p.m. Sunday, Donston said. One man had to be treated for smoke inhalation at Jameson Memorial Hospital, the fire chief said.

Donston estimated about $80,000 damage to the building, which is owned by Chuck and Marilyn Cook of New Castle.
