NORTH COVENTRY TWP., Pa. - Crews fought a massive fire at an apartment complex in Chester County on Thursday night.
Heavy flames were spotted coming from the three-story apartment building around 7:30 p.m. in North Coventry Township. It quickly moved to three alarms. Fire crews from several counties were on the scene struggling to get the fire under control.
The chief of Goodwill Ambulance said that one woman was taken to a burn unit in the Lehigh Valley. Two firefighters were taken to the hospital to be treated for heat exhaustion.
The Red Cross says it believes about 100 people were displaced in the fire. Apartment residents were being bused to the Norco Fire Company on West Schuylkill Road.
A 69 News crew at the scene said smoke could be seen from miles away.
Witnesses say the roof partially collapsed and then all three floors became engulfed in flames. As of about 10 p.m. the entire roof was gone and the entire building was on fire.
There were original reports that people did have to be rescued from the building. It appears so far that everyone was able to make it out of the apartments.
Still no word of how or where in the building the fire started.
