 Tuesday, October 25, 2016


A Hempfield Township family is offering a hefty reward after their costly farming equipment is destroyed in a fire. Tom Logan of Logan Family Farms said his John Deere tractor and combine caught fire around 3 a.m. Sunday at a property he rents for his two sons in Mount Pleasant Township, Westmoreland County. Logan said the total loss is around $500,000. State police fire investigators are handling the case and said the cause of the fire is undetermined at this point. Logan said he believes it was set intentionally because of a fire to his tractor three years ago at the same location. That fire was ruled arson.
