10 displaced in Pottstown fire

POTTSTOWN, Pa. - A house fire in Pottstown left ten people homeless Sunday night.

The fire broke out around 5:30 p.m. on East Fifth Street and went to two alarms.

Crews knocked the flames down quickly, but the fire caused significant damage.

No injuries were reported.

Fire officials say the cause is still under investigation and the ten people displaced are receiving assistance from the Red Cross. 

The home is uninhabitable at this time, however it does not appear to be a total loss, according to fire officials. 

There is a lot of water damage inside that needs to be repaired before anyone can move back into the building, officials said.
