1:25 PM: Warren Fire Causes Traffic Pattern Changes

WARREN, Pa. — A major fire on Warren’s east side has caused numerous traffic pattern changes.

Staff at the 911 Center told the Times Observer newspaper Thursday afternoon that no traffic into the city of Warren will be permitted over the Glade Bridge for at least 24 hours.

Westbound motorists can either proceed over the DorCon Road bypass to Crescent and enter the city from the south side or continue to the Ludlow Street exit and enter the city’s west end.

A fire that broke out early Thursday destroyed a business in Warren located on Pennsylvania Avenue East. Several fire departments were summoned to battle the large blaze.
