Heavy wind knocked part of a tin roof off a mobile home in Chanceford Township on Monday.

Firefighters responded about 2 p.m. to the 11000 block of Shortcut Road to help repair the damage.

Terry Snelbaker, deputy chief of the New Bridgeville Fire Co., said firefighters were able to re-fasten the roof.

"With the impending weather coming, we knew we had to do something to help the homeowner," Snelbaker said.

He said firefighters also advised the homeowner, who lives alone, to contact a roof company soon.
