JOHNSTOWN — The final runs of a skiing event held at Hidden Valley Four Seasons Resort as part of the Pennsylvania Special Olympics Winter Games were postponed Monday afternoon when this fire erupted at a private home at the resort.

Nicole Jones, director of communications for Special Olympics, said skiers will be able to complete the advanced ski runs this morning before any other events start.

Fire companies responded quickly to the blaze, reported at 3:10 p.m., Jones said.

Anna Weltz, communications manager for Seven Springs and Hidden Valley resorts, said no one was at home when the fire started.
