EAST NORWEGIAN TWP., Pa. -

State police are trying to find out if a burglary is connected to a fire that destroyed the offices of a storage business in Schuylkill County.

The fire started at around 5:30 a.m. Sunday at Saint Clair Storage in East Norwegian Township.

No one was hurt, but roads around the facility were closed for hours while crews worked to put the fire out.

The fire caused about $400,000 in damages.

State police said a burglar cut pad locks to eight different storage units at the facility, and the burglary may be linked to the fire.
