Just before 0900 hours, Lehigh County comm center dispatched companies 23, 9, 6 and 24 to the area of Rt. 873 and Friedens Rd. for a house fire with rescue - a elderly man reported to be on the roof of the house. A fire police captain arrives and reports a working fire.
Crews find heavy fire on the first and second floors of the dwelling. 4 handlines are stretched and in-service. Ladder 23 sets up in the front of the fire building while ladder 24 goes to the roof on the Delta side. Crews quickly darkened down the bulk of the fire but had extensive overhaul ops due to heavy extension into the walls. It took firefighters about an hour to contain the fire.
Walnutport, Neffs and Lehigh Township assisted at the scene.
