STROUD TOWNSHIP, Pa. - Fire destroyed a portion of an abandoned resort in the Poconos Monday.
According to Monroe County authorities, as many as six fire companies were called to the former Penn Hills Resort in Stroud Township around 5 p.m.
The fire appears to have been limited to a one of the buildings in the complex.
Roadways in the area were closed during the operation, which ended began to wind down around 8 p.m.
At this point, there's no word on what may have caused the fire.
The Penn Hills Resort opened in the 1940s and was a popular destination for generations until finally closing nearly a decade ago.
In recent years, the resort made dubious headlines when authorities searched the property during their manhunt for convicted cop killer Eric Frein.
A controversial church in Wayne County has drawn criticism after asking members to bring their AR-15 rifles with them to a blessing ceremony next week.Read More »
