Sarris Candies on Fire

Posted by PicasaAbout a dozen employees safely escaped a fire at Sarris Candies early Friday morning.
Kevin Wittik, who works in the shipping department, said he arrived at the Canonsburg store around 6:30 a.m.—when smoke first started showing.
“I got in and got everyone out,” he said. “Smoke was just starting to be visible, but then it got pretty intense.”
Wittik and fellow employees gathered in the parking lot as fire crews worked to contain the fire, which appeared to start in the ice cream parlor-side of the building—mostly in the roof and attic.
