SHILLINGTON, Pa. - Three people, including an infant, were rushed to the hospital after suffering smoke inhalation in a fire in Berks County early Friday morning, according to fire officials.
Firefighters got the call shortly after 6 a.m. for the report of a house on fire in the 100 block of Second Street in Shillington. Officials on the scene quickly struck a second alarm for extra manpower.
Three people -- two adults and the infant -- were inside the home at the time. Fire officials said they managed to make it down the stairs but couldn't see the door to get out of the home, so firefighters led them to safety.
All three victims were transported by ambulance to Reading Hospital, officials said.
A Pennsylvania State Police fire marshal is now working to find the cause of the fire, which appears to have started in the home's basement, according to fire officials.
