Firefighters battle multi-alarm house fire in Reading

READING, Pa. - A two-alarm fire damaged a row of homes in Reading on Monday.

The first call went out around 5:30 p.m. for multiple reports of a house on fire at 748 North Ninth Street, between Douglass and Oley streets.

The first fire officials on the scene quickly struck a second alarm, bringing in firefighters from the suburbs to help battle the blaze. They fought the fire from both the front and the back of the homes.

Met-Ed was also asked to send a crew to the scene for live power lines that fell in the area.

There were no reports of injuries.
