11 Killed In Blaze At Mountain Cabin

An early morning fire killed 11 people at a mountain cabin Sunday, including high school and college students on a camping trip.

Centre County coroner Scott Sayers would not identify the 11 victims. He said there were no survivors.

John E. Wehry, a co-owner of the cabin, lost two nieces and a nephew in the blaze.

“There’s a hole in everyone’s heart,” he told the Centre Daily Times. “I guess the good Lord wants the good kids first.”

The fire broke out at 5:20 a.m. in this township 20 miles northeast of State College, according to state police.

The two-story oak and pine cabin sat on a secluded, heavily wooded site off a winding two-lane road. Its crumpled metal roof sat askew on what remained of the cabin’s frame and foundation.
