Fire company nixes Easter egg hunt due to 'unruly' crowds

POTTSTOWN, Pa. - An eastern Pennsylvania volunteer fire company has canceled this year's Easter egg hunt because of "unruly crowds" in past years.

Nobody answered the phone at the Norco Fire Company in North Coventry Township on Friday.

But the group says on its Facebook page that there won't be an Easter egg hunt for children this year.

The post says, "We know that the majority of our community is not the problem, but we can't risk injury to children because certain individuals can't control themselves. We are hoping to try again at some point!"

The township is near Pottstown, about 40 miles northwest of Philadelphia.
