Porch fire threatens house, 2nd alarm sounded

Lehigh County

Tuesday afternoon, Lehigh County 9-1-1 center transmitted a full box for a house fire at 115 Hill Street in Slatington.

Police arrived and reported a working rubbish fire on the back porch and under a deck of a two-story duplex. A command officer responding from a distance seen a header in the area and requested a 2nd alarm.

Police officers used extinguishers to try and contain the fire before it spread to the house.

The first arriving engine company stretched a line to the rear using a sidewalk along the side of the house. Another line was stretched into the interior in case the fire extended to the rear wall of the dwelling.

Quick work by the police and firefighters kept this fire from spreading to the adjoining homes.
