McKeesport mayor declares state of emergency after fire destroys Public Works garage

The fire broke out just after 6:15 a.m.Sunday.

The mayor’s office said in a statement four large dump trucks equipped with snowplows, a street sweeper and a vactor truck for cleaning storm sewers were lost in the blaze — all vehicles vital to Public Works operations.

“I have to go up a hill, two hills so to speak just to get to my particular job as a caregiver so it’s going to be pretty dicey probably depending on what other bad weather comes in,” McKeesport resident Friday Schofield said.

Cherepko said the declaration allows the city to “work expeditiously toward solutions, as the Public Works Department tends to city services this winter.”
