WEST READING, Pa. — Firefighters from West Reading and beyond battled a 2-alarm rowhome fire in the borough on Monday.
The first crews were dispatched shortly before 11 a.m. to the 300 block of Spruce Street.
Officials struck a second alarm for extra manpower as smoke poured out of the home. That call summoned firefighters from the city and neighboring municipalities.
Investigators said it appears the fire started in the area of the basement furnace and extended up to the 3rd floor. The house next door suffered smoke damage, officials said.
No one was injured.
