NEW CASTLE, Pa. (AP) — Firefighters in Pennsylvania have managed to save 200 pounds of Polish sausage from what they're calling the best-smelling fire they've doused in years.
.
The New Castle News reports that firefighters responded about 11:30 a.m. Monday when a 20-by-20-foot smokehouse caught fire in the yard of Cash Koszela (koh-ZEL'-uh). He's a retired meat cutter who's been smoking his own sausage for about 30 years.
.
Firefighters say some grease caught fire when the smokehouse got too hot — about 300 degrees.
.
Koszela says it will cost about $3,000 to replace the smokehouse. It's actually a tin-lined walk-in cooler fed by smoke piped in from a fire pit.
.
Assistant Fire Chief David Joseph says, "This is definitely the best-smelling fire we've seen in a long time."
