Demolition of charred firehouse under way

LOWER SAUCON TWP., Pa. - Almost two weeks after flames ripped through a firehouse in Northampton County, crews were back at the scene Tuesday to knock down the charred remains.

Demolition is now under way at the site of the Leithsville Fire Company's station in Lower Saucon Township.

A dump truck crashed into a car on Route 412 on May 24, causing the two vehicles to slide into the station and sparking a massive fire.
The driver of the car, John Muzyka, of Hellertown, was killed and the driver of the dump truck was hurt.

Members of the Leithsville and Se-Wy-Co fire companies will hold an all-you-can-eat breakfast this Sunday at the Leithsville social hall in Hellertown to raise money for the station.
