A wildfire was burning Tuesday evening near Minersville in Beaver County.
Lightning apparently caused the fire about 5 p.m., 3 miles southeast of Minersville, Bureau of Land Management spokesman Nick Howell wrote in a press release.
The fire is estimated to be 750 acres and is threatening one cabin, Howell wrote. The Tribune will provide further details as they become available.
