Man dies in Forest County fire early Thursday

 A man died in a fire early Thursday morning in Harmony Township, Forest County.

Marienville state police said a propane leak in the residence on Trunkeyville Road caused an explosion and fire about 2:30 a.m., resulting in the death of 56-year-old Terry M. Meade.

The fire spread to a nearby seasonal residence that was unoccupied, and both structures were destroyed.

A third seasonal residence suffered an estimated $100,000 in damage.

West Hickory and Tionesta fire departments initially responded to the fire, and a state police fire marshal investigated the blaze.

No other information had been released as of early Friday evening.
