A fire tore through one side of a duplex home Thursday morning in Wilkes-Barre’s Parsons section. Crews were called out to 29-31 Kado St. just before 11 a.m. and encountered fire coming from the side and rear of the left side of the property, said fire Chief Jay Delaney. No one was home at the time, he said. Crews contained the fire to the 31 Kado St. side of the residence, though the other side sustained smoke damage, he said. Fire crews are still investigating a cause.
