First Commonwealth Bank Announces Plans to Rebuild following Green Tree Branch Fire
Green Tree, PA (August 17, 2018) – First Commonwealth Bank announced today plans to rebuild a branch at the same location where their Green Tree branch was destroyed on August 11 after a car caught fire while using the drive-up ATM and spread to the branch.
First Commonwealth is targeting a Spring 2019 open date of the new branch, according to Gina Homa, Market Leader for the bank’s Allegheny South region. The five Green Tree office employees have been relocated to other First Commonwealth locations to work until the new office opens.
Since the fire, the bank’s focus has been on securely removing customer valuables from the convenience box area. All valuables were removed August 13, and customers were contacted starting August 14 to retrieve their items. No damage has been reported by any customers who have picked up their items.
Meanwhile the bank is thankful there were no injuries suffered during the fire and plans to make donations in appreciation to all of the fire companies who responded.
