Video: Crews battle fire

RICHLAND TWP., Pa. - Crews were called to the scene of a large fire at the Highway Marine Services building on Route 309 in Richland Township Sunday morning.

Crews from several fire companies were on the scene at 875 Route 309 North around 11 a.m.

The fire closed both lanes of Route 309 northbound and one lane southbound. All lanes have since been reopened.

Jim Runkle, who lives behind the building, said the fire was in the boat warehouse where workers do repairs and detailing on the boats.

"We were worried about our houses," said Runkle. "A lot of smoke. It was only once or twice that you saw any flames in the beginning."
